Tritech Sells Gemini Profiling Sonars to STR
Tritech announces the sale of multiple Gemini 620pd multibeam profiling sonars to Subsea Technology and Rentals (STR), Great Yarmouth.
The sales of Gemini 620pd, the latest technology for subsea profiling operations, are significant for Tritech as they follow on from the successful introduction of the Gemini Narrow Beam Imager (NBI) to the company’s multibeam range. STR, who has recently refocused their business, already offers a comprehensive suite of Tritech industry-standard sensors and sonars for rental. This latest purchase will augment their rental pool and further support customer requests for a multibeam bathymetric profiling tool.
Tritech’s Gemini 620pd profiling sonar operates at 620 kHz and is able to provide 10mm range results with an angular resolution of 0.5°. The Gemini 620pd can be configured as a single-head system, or set up as in a dual-head mode for accurate pipeline profiling utilising the Gemini Hub for accurate synchronisation whilst processing.
Users of the Gemini 620pd profiling sonar have the option to run the system in equidistant or equiangular mode, depending on the survey and target of interest, whilst monitoring real-time roll correction and automatic bottom tracking.
Neil Jackson, Sales and Operations Manager at STR commented:
“We continue to invest in the latest technologies to provide our customers with the best service and most up to date equipment. The decision to invest in multiple Tritech Gemini 620pd’s highlights that commitment. The onset of a new state-of-the-art subsea profiling tool into the market fits perfectly with our wide range of Tritech imaging and survey sensors already available for rental.”
Scott McLay, Sales Director, Tritech commented:
“We are delighted with STR’s continued investment in the latest technology from Tritech and that the purchase of the Gemini 620pd profiling sonars is further example of STR’s commitment to investing in the latest technology. We are confident STR’s customers will be keen to see the capabilities the Gemini 620pd profiling sonar can offer first hand, as a comprehensive high-speed alternative for bathymetric survey.”
