Kangerlussuaq Harbour Bathymetry

Job Completed: Sikuki Nuuk Harbour A/S Bathymetry

We are pleased to announce that we have successfully completed the bathymetry survey for Sikuki Nuuk Harbour A/S in Kangerlussuaq last week. Erik Christensen executed the project immediately after the solid ice melted, providing us with unrestricted access to the harbor.

Between June and December, the harbor in Kangerlussuaq remains free of solid ice. It is crucial to ensure the safety of tourists who arrive at Kangerlussuaq Airport and embark on excursion trips along the Greenlandic coast using ships.

Critical Harbor Survey

The harbor in Kangerlussuaq faces the challenge of sand drifting due to the runoff from two main rivers: Akuliarusersuup Kuua (Danish: Sandflugtsdalen) and Qinnguata Kuussua (Danish: Ørkendalen English: Watson River). Consequently, the waterway undergoes periodic shifts, despite efforts by cranes to relocate the sand and maintain obstacle-free areas for smaller transfer boats and cargo prams in Kangerlussuaq.

Customer’s Desired Output

Our customer urgently required updated contour lines, and we promptly fulfilled their request. The day after Erik Christensen returned to Denmark, we delivered the necessary data. Additionally, Erik was able to generate various outputs, such as a point cloud with XYZ data, along with 2D and 3D visualizations.
