Bibby HydroMap will once again be exhibiting at the world’s leading forum for ocean technology and marine science on Stand C101. Oceanology International’s world-class exhibition and conference help bring together marine professionals, businesses and organisations to help their strategies for measuring, developing, protecting and operating in the world’s oceans. Oceanology International 2018 takes place from 13-15th March at the Excel in London, and is free to attend.

Experience our new autonomous survey platform - DriX

Bibby HydroMap have recently invested in a brand new AUSV from iXblue to bring to market in the UK and Northern Europe. Specifically designed with a revolutionary hull shape optimized for both coastal and offshore missions, and manufactured using state of the art composite materials, DriX operates with the utmost stability, guaranteeing the best possible results, with excellent and unmatched performance offshore. In a step change for autonomous survey, DriX offers up to 7 days of data acquisition endurance at speeds of up to 14 knots. Multiple navigation options are also available ranging from full autonomy, to autopilot, remote supervisor action, a “follow-me” function and a “hovering” mode, all COLREG compliant.

We will be running demonstrations each day from the dockside exhibition area – please contact either or to secure your place.

Learn more about our asset integrity surveys

Over the past 12 months, we have continued to develop our offering for above and below the waterline asset integrity surveys using both vessel mounted and remote technology. Using a range of advanced subsea, land based and remote survey technology including the Teledyne BlueView BV5000 3D mechanical scanning sonar, we are able to provide high- resolution imagery of structures for monitoring and inspection, providing a cost-effective alternative to traditional techniques.

Our Business Development Manager, Michael King, will be speaking as part of the conference programme on the topic of Can We Now Achieve Enhanced Survey Validity for Asset Integrity Monitoring? Learn more during the session - Imaging and Metrology: Part 3, South Gallery 5, Wednesday 14th March, 15.15 – 16.35.

Opportunities to win prizes

As part of the show, we will be exhibiting our Bibby Athena model, which has become a staple on the exhibition circuit in recent years. In 2018, you have the chance to win prizes based around Bibby Athena, and pit yourselves against each other by setting a timed lap around a famous race circuit in a bid to win some locally produced artisan gin.


Our stand will be fully stocked with a range of food and drink, and we welcome you join us for a hot coffee, cold beer or a speciality cocktail prepared by our dedicated barman. Find us on Stand C101, close to the entrance. We hope to see you there!
