VERIPOS Bags UTEC GNSS Positioning Solutions Deal
VERIPOS, part of Hexagon’s Positioning Intelligence Division, has secured a multi-year contract extension to supply GNSS services to UTEC, a global surveying company in subsea services group Acteon.
Under the terms of the agreement, VERIPOS will upgrade existing GNSS hardware with their latest multi-constellation, multi-frequency receivers and supply UTEC with a full range of proprietary positioning services, including its latest Apex5 signal corrections and Quantum GNSS visualization software.
John Macleod, general manager of VERIPOS EAME said: “We are pleased to extend our relationship with UTEC to support their offshore endeavours. A key area in our discussions with them was our continued development of GNSS positioning technology and solutions. As offshore operations are now encountering more incidences of intentional and non-intentional GNSS interference, our latest anti-jamming technology is designed to ensure the highest levels of signal integrity. This is recognized by key customers such as UTEC as a necessity to mitigate against costly offshore downtime.”
Neil Lawrence, global director, Projects & Operations at UTEC added, “We have worked closely with VERIPOS since 2005 and value both the quality of service and continuity that our long-term relationship provides.”
