UK: Seatronics Orders Sonardyne's Subsea Positioning Equipment

Market leading offshore equipment rental company, Seatronics, an Acteon Company has increased its commitment to Sonardyne’s sixth generation technology platform – 6G – with a major order for subsea acoustic positioning hardware.

The equipment will be added to Seatronic’s equipment pool in Aberdeen from where it will be made available for use on projects across Europe and Africa.

The order is for a consignment of Sonardyne’s most advanced subsea positioning and data telemetry transponder Compatt 6 which is configurable to meet any subsea positioning requirement Seatronic’s customers may have. This includes template installation, hydrographic survey and high accuracy pipeline metrology. The first project ear-marked for the new equipment, is a deep water gas field off the Nile Delta when it will be used in conjunction with Sonardyne’s subsea inertial navigation system SPRINT during the initial construction phases of the development.

Commenting on the benefits available from their new stock of Sonardyne 6G Compatts, Seatronics Operations Manager, Phil Middleton said, “Our existing stock of 6G equipment has proven itself to be an adaptable and reliable platform enabling subsea tasks to be completed in less time than was previously possible. It’s helped make our customers more efficient and ultimately lowered their costs. Increasing our 6G pool ensures Seatronics is well placed to meet rising demand from our region in the coming months.”
