Marine survey specialist MMT, Sweden, has been awarded a contract with the Black Sea Maritime Archaeological Project (Black Sea MAP) for archaeological and geological scientific surveys at the Black Sea.
The operations will be performed from the vessel Stril Explorer and will consist of seabed mapping, inspections and geotechnical sampling in close co-operation with the project scientific team.
The primary survey tool on board will be the SROV Surveyor Interceptor, jointly owned and operated by MMT and Reach Subsea, Norway.
Black Sea MAP is an investigation of the prehistoric and historic archaeology of the Western Black Sea, focusing on prehistoric changes in sea level. In scale and scope it is said to be the largest such project ever undertaken of the submerged cultural heritage of Bulgaria and should contribute to the enhancement of the record of human activity in this region.
