SS Gwladmena – Shetland Islands

With the summer here, Deep3D has been busy. One very large and collaborative project will be published later this year but we have managed to slip away and scan some wrecks in Shetland.

Built in 1878, the SS Gwladmena sank in 1918 and now lies in 38m of water close to Lerwick. At 70m long and 10m wide we did wonder if there would be sufficient time to cover the entire wreck site…and whilst there are a few gaps that need filling in with a subsequent dive, this model really does capture the state of the wreck today:-

More updates from Shetland to follow.
