Alpine owns a wide variety of vessels ranging from 12’ skiffs to a 110’ live aboard research vessel. This allows us to match our clients’ needs with an appropriate vessel, thereby maximizing project efficiency and minimizing project costs. For situations where Alpine may not have an appropriate vessel available, Alpine can draw from Gardline’s fleet of ocean going, near shore and geotechnical drill ships as well as a network of vessel operators worldwide.
Our vessels are complemented by Alpine’s extensive inventory of state of the art equipment. We are committed to providing our clients with the best and most current technological solution, be it for a simple bathymetry survey or a multi-disciplinary project. Regardless of whether our client needs a geophysical system, oceanographic/environmental instrument or the latest multi-beam equipment, we pride ourselves on constantly innovating our survey collection methods and upgrading our capabilities to meet or exceed industry standards.
