Additional Sonardyne GyroUSBLs for Horizon Geosciences
UAE-based Horizon Geosciences has commissioned an additional two Sonardyne GyroUSBL acoustic positioning systems to complement the systems they currently work with.
The new equipment will be used to support subsea construction projects across the Middle East.
Horizon has adopted GyroUSBL for its marine operations as it introduces new standards of efficiency and underwater positioning performance.
“We provide precise positioning for numerous activities offshore and often have to mobilise personnel and positioning equipment at short notice. GyroUSBL fits in perfectly with the unpredictable nature of our operations without compromising standards,” said Lance Hanson, Survey Projects Director at Horizon Geosciences. “We witnessed performance and operational gains soon after we began using GyroUSBL, so we decided to expand our deployment of the technology.”
Graeme Buchanan, Sales Manager for Sonardyne in Singapore said, “Key to getting the best performance of any traditional USBL system is making sure it’s correctly calibrated. With GyroUSBL we’ve been able to eliminate this step, allowing users to focus on getting straight to work. The decision by Horizon to increase the number of systems employed in the field means that more projects across the Middle East and beyond will benefit from GyroUSBL’s increased performance and cost saving benefits.”
