Veripos strengthens Southern African positioning serviceNews // June 20, 2007
Aberdeen-based Veripos has strengthened its global GNSS-based precise positioning services for offshore applications with the appointment of Underwater Surveys (Pty) Ltd of South Africa as exclusive agent for sales and support of its products and services throughout Southern Africa, from Angola to Tanzania.
They comprise Veripos’ complete range of high-precision global satellite positioning capabilities including its Ultra service, a Precise Point Positioning (PPP) decimetre solution, together with proprietary quality control software and a series of advanced integrated user mobile hardware.
Commenting on the appointment, Tony Leary, Veripos’ Managing Director, said: “We are absolutely delighted with this cooperation, which will significantly strengthen our activities in this rapidly developing region. We firmly believe that both organisations share a philosophy of delivering the best products and services with particular focus on customer and operational excellence”.
Ephan Potgieter, Managing Director of Underwater Surveys (Pty) Ltd, added: “With this appointment, Veripos has established a full-time service centre for Southern Africa in support of its complete range of services for professional offshore applications. Moreover, its products and services complement and extend Underwater Survey’s own advanced offshore survey capabilities."
Based in Cape Town, Underwater Surveys (Pty) Limited is a leading independent contractor providing a wide range of offshore survey and positioning services.
Established earlier this year following a management buyout of RESON SA, it retains a number of internationally experienced professionals specialising in the provision of multibeam surveys and positioning services.
The agreement further consolidates Veripos’ globalised GNSS services and follows recent establishment of a secondary base in Singapore for servicing major offshore users in Asia Pacific regions.
