Arc Surveying & Mapping Inc. has been selected by the Jacksonville Electric Authority (JEA) to perform hydrographic surveys at several JEA facilities along the St. Johns River in Florida.
The three-year contract involves multibeam swath and singlebeam depth surveys to assist JEA with scheduling dredging events as required for safe navigation and berthing. The multibeam and singlebeam depth surveys use highly advanced sonar sounders to map underwater areas and identify dangers to navigation. Arc also will perform surveys of JEA power generating station intake and outfall systems for maintenance purposes.
“We are very pleased that JEA has the trust and confidence in Arc that is essential when dealing with the shoaling and dredging issues commonplace along the St. Johns River” Patrick Sawyer vice-president of Arc said. “We are proud to have JEA as a client.”
