Veripos in Aberdeen, the well-known supplier of high-precision GNSS positioning solutions to offshore oil and gas sectors, has been awarded a two-year extension on its GNSS positioning contract with E R Offshore, the subsidiary of the Hamburg-based shipping organisation E R Schiffahrt.

The extended contract is to support ER Offshore’s fleet of eleven PSVs and two anchor handling tug supply vessels (AHTS).

Under the new arrangement, Veripos will continue to supply nine of E R Offshore’s PSVs with its Standard high-precision augmentation service providing metre-level accuracies; a further two vessels will utilise its latest Standard² service which offers an additional Glonass capability. E R Offshore’s two 86m AHTS, ER Luisa and ER Vittoria, will also utilise the Standard² service.

All 13 E R Offshore vessels, which are maintained and chartered for wordwide operations, are already permanently equipped with configurable Veripos LD2 integrated mobile units for generating any proprietary positioning solutions in addition to outputting data and measurements to external processing or quality control software.
