Sonardyne and Forum Subsea Rentals close dealCompany News // February 12, 2015
Sonardyne International Ltd has announced that Forum Subsea Rentals (FSR) is to substantially increase its stockholding of Sonardyne 6G Long BaseLine (LBL) acoustic positioning technology.
The order, for an undisclosed sum, was confirmed on the opening day of Subsea Expo 2015, Europe’s largest annual subsea exhibition and conference, which is taking place 11-13 February in Aberdeen.
The consignment of 6G products due for delivery to FSR is extensive and includes high specification Compatt 6 transponders, RovNav 6 and Dunker 6 transceivers and iWand portable test and configuration devices.
The new equipment will replace the previous fifth generation LBL equipment held by Forum Subsea Rentals in their Aberdeen rental pool and will be available to support oil and gas field development projects worldwide.
6G products incorporate Sonardyne’s ultra-wideband width digital ranging and telemetry protocols that were developed to increase the precision, speed and reliability of subsea positioning operations. The technology has been proven to deliver significant operational savings, allowing all manner of survey and construction tasks to be completed in less time, and with less risk, than was previously possible.
