Part of the Trinity Consultants Australia group, VE ANZ combines local knowledge with international resources to offer 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, New Zealand and further afield.

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.
