German AWI Purchases Sercel’s Sentinel HR
CGG informed that Sercel has sold one of its new Sentinel HR high-resolution solid streamers to the German research foundation, the Alfred Wegener Institute (AWI).
AWI will use the Sentinel HR on research projects it is conducting to record critical data about the relationship between geological activity and ecosystems in order to gain a better understanding of the Earth’s system.
AWI has also added the combination of Sercel’s SeaProNav integrated high-end navigation system and QuietSea Passive Acoustic Monitoring (PAM) system to its marine seismic equipment portfolio to optimize marine mammal detection during seismic acquisition.
Pascal Rouiller, Sercel CEO, said: “We are delighted that AWI has again selected Sercel systems to conduct its next oceanographic surveys in polar regions. By adding the Sentinel HR to its portfolio of Sercel marine seismic acquisition equipment, which includes the Sentinel, Seal 428, SeaPro Nav and QuietSea, AWI will benefit from highly detailed images of the shallow sediment layers in the most challenging environments.”
