Tritech has sold 3 Gemini 720id multibeam sonars to DPS Offshore, the subsea rental division of Forum Energy Technologies (FET), as part of a recent package worth in excess of $400K.
This sale reaffirms DPS Offshore’s commitment to increase its global rental pool of equipment, placing orders locally in Houston to cover the Gulf of Mexico (GoM) requirements, whist also ordering from its UK office to cover territories outside the USA.
The deep Gemini purchases, alongside earlier purchases of Tritech’s high-performance imaging sonars, will allow DPS Offshore to meet the requirements of their clients’ work-class ROVs (Remotely Operated Vehicles), from its USA, UK and Singapore offices. DPS Offshore has now spent well in excess of $1M with Tritech over the past 12 months; ensuring they are able to meet the increasing global demand for Tritech equipment.
“As DPS Offshore continues to increase its fleet of rental products and resource its regional offices, we recognise the need to ensure our clients have access to the latest in underwater technology. The purchase of Tritech’s deepwater Gemini 720id sonars and other sensory equipment allows DPS Offshore to enhance the capabilities and performance of our global fleet. DPS Offshore is recognised for our commitment to service and this purchase reflects our confidence in Tritech’s reputation as a provider of reliable, high-performance ROV sensors.”
The Gemini 720id is Tritech’s deepwater multibeam imaging sonar (rated to 4,000m) which delivers real-time, accurate data and is increasingly being recognised as the sonar of choice for real-time multibeam imaging, complimenting the industry-standard, mechanical scanning technologies.
DPS Offshore’s confidence in Tritech products is furthered by their knowledge that Tritech’s products can be operated together. Offering an integrated solution, the Gemini can be easily networked on Tritech’s SCU5 alongside other Tritech sensors.
