Subsea Technology & Rentals Expands Sonardyne Rental Pool - 07/02/2014


Continuing its investment in Sonardyne 6G acoustic positioning technology, Subsea Technology & Rentals (STR, UK) boosted its rental stock with the purchase of Ranger 2 USBL tracking systems, a Lodestar GyroCompatt, Wideband Mini Transponders (WMTs), LBL Compatt 6 transponders with specialist inclinometer DigiQuartz sensors and ROVNav 6 transceivers from Sonardyne International, UK.

The equipment has been added to the company’s rental pool in Great Yarmouth from where it is available to support survey and construction projects worldwide.

STR has purchased the portable version of the Ranger 2 which is configured for use on vessels of opportunity where it may only remain installed for a short period. The Compatts and ROVNavs ordered will complement the LBL hardware the company previously ordered and was in high demand throughout 2013 for applications including pipeline metrology and structure installation.
