JOT team are capable to do a commendable job in converting an ordinary Offshore Supply Vessel into a full fledged Research Survey Vessel in a shortest possible time without taking it to drydock. This task was carried out under the expert guidance of highly decorated Flag Officer Commodore N.P. Mukundan. ( Retd. I.Navy) The first cruise of this vessel was flagged off by the then Director General of CSIR, Prof. P. Mitra. ( NIO and NEERI are CSIR Institutes ). Many similar cruises followed covering all ONGC offshore oil-fields in the west coast and East coast. During this period JOT was able to indigenously develop most of the Import Substitute equipments needed for the survey. ( Letter of appreciation signed by Dr. Sarin, Deputy Director of NEERI is given below ).
We are the most trusted Hydrographic survey company in India, mainly because while carrying out the Pre or Post Dredging Hydrographic surveys, we never worked hand in gloves with the dredging companies by certifying non existent extra Ghost Quantities and putting our clients into heavy loss. There are many cases where we were approached by major industries for a re-survey of the work done by others and they were shocked to find the huge variation in quantity in our survey and their surveys, We established very high ethical standards in our work, we have put checks and counter checks in place solely for the benefit of our clients.
