Company Description

Ultrabeam Limited was established in spring 2018 by Andy McLeay and Gabriel Walton who share over 45 years combined experience in coastal and offshore surveys.  The company was formed to service the inshore survey market by providing high quality hydrographic and geophysical services to a wide range of clients from ports & harbours, utilities, offshore renewable energy, oil & gas and public sector industries.  Ultrabeam provide an unparalleled level of accuracy and detail through use of specialist highly innovative survey tools and techniques. The Ultrabeam difference is in our data supported by our many years of shallow and deep water survey experience.  We see our work as a distinct specialism and rather than overlapping from a core land Survey Company or being an appendage to a large offshore survey company Ultrabeam is entirely focused on ultra-high resolution coastal survey and delivery of outstanding high quality data.  Ultrabeam has received a grant from the Marine Challenge Fund, part of the ERDF’s European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme 2014-2020 which partly funded a revolutionary marine asset inspection USV.  These new capabilities will allow Ultrabeam to grow our business, and to boost the marine technology sector in Cornwall.
