The Vigo winch from C-MAX enables water column profiles to be taken from a moving vessel, eliminating survey downtime and automating the data collection workflow.

Conventional profiling requires the survey vessel to stop at each sample site before deploying and then recovering the profiler.

Taking profiles from a moving vessel during the survey requires no adjustment to speed or course. Profiles can be taken as often as required with minimal operator input.

An integrated GPS allows profiles to be taken automatically based on distance travelled.
