Researchers, laboratories, field equipment, commercial vessels, readily mobilised technical teams

Vision Environment (VE) is a company of environmental monitoring specialists with more than 18 years’ experience in the fields of water quality and marine ecology. We have a highly qualified team of full-time research staff, dedicated laboratory facilities, specialised field equipment and a fleet of commercial vessels.

We specialise in the delivery and functional usability of high quality real time compliance data, and we can provide readily mobilised field technical teams for projects in Australia and overseas.

Our expertise includes:

  • Design and implementation of Water Quality (WQMP) and Receiving Environment (REMP) Monitoring Plans
  • Dredge monitoring and assessment
  • Ecological health assessments (mangroves, seagrass, sediments, macrobenthic, fish and coral)
  • Assessment of marine pest incursions
  • Ecological mapping
  • Toxicity testing of effluents
  • Monitoring the short and long-term impacts of acute environmental events.

VE researchers have also produced a number of internationally peer-reviewed publications for the wider academic community and have substantially contributed to environmental research and development.

VE is a company of commercial firsts in Australia through in-house design and innovation, particularly for dredge compliance monitoring. This has included telemetered PAR (benthic light), the use of altimeters to measure sedimentation rates and bed level changes, acoustic (non-cabled) delivery of telemetered physicochemistry data and the use of a publicly viewed real time dredge status update dial.
