Guyana set for undersea surveying-…after UK donates $68M in sonar equipment

Sixty-eight million dollars’ worth of sonar equipment was yesterday handed over to the Government  by the United Kingdom Hydrographic Office, and within the next three weeks, Guyana will be able to undertake undersea surveying and mapping activities.

The donation of the equipment, which includes a multi-beam echo sounder, tide gauge, sound velocity profiler and accompanying equipment, was done through the Commonwealth Marine Economies (CME) programme. The equipment will be installed on the MT Aruka.
