Veripos' Houston-based Americas Region has been awarded major offshore positioning contracts by DOF Subsea, LSP, Tidewater and WesternGeco for vessels operating in Brazilian, Mexican and US waters. The contracts also cover supply of proprietary integrated demodulator and GNSS receivers and associated software modules to ensure seamless high-precision sub-metre positioning for survey, construction support, seismic and general offshore operations.
Facilities being provided to LSP for its well-testing vessel, Aires Swan, operating in Mexican waters on long-term contract to PEMEX include Veripos' dual-beam Standard and Standard HF augmentation data services together with LD2 and LHD2 integrated demodulator and GNSS receivers. Meanwhile, WesternGeco's seismic support vessels Toisa Crest and Toisa Coral are to use the Veripos Ultra Precise Point Positioning (PPP) service for decimetre-level accuracies supported by LD2-G2 receivers and Verify-QC processing software.
In Brazil, Verify-QC software is additionally being provided for DOF Subsea's Skandi Fluminense support vessel using Veripos dual-beam Ultra PPP and D-Glonass positioning. Also in Brazil, Tidewater's Kehoe Tide and Dalan Tide have both been equipped with LD2-GS receivers with added UHF systems in readiness for operations later this year.
