Vietnam’s Thien Nam Positioning Selects Sonardyne Subsea Technology
Vietnam-based Thien Nam Positioning JSC has selected subsea technology from Sonardyne that tracks the position of divers and remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) as they carry out surveys and inspections, to supports its offshore activities in the region.
The Mini-Ranger 2 Ultra-Short BaseLine (USBL) acoustic tracking system, the first to be delivered into Vietnam, was supplied through Sonardyne’s subsidiary in Singapore.
Thien Nam Positioning conducts a wide range of geophysical surveys, pipeline and flowline installations, and maintenance operations in support of the country’s offshore oil and gas industry.
Vu Ba Dinh, managing director at Thien Nam Positioning said, “We’ve been a user of Sonardyne’s deep water system, Ranger 2 USBL, for some time now and been pleased with the results it’s delivered. Our decision to invest in Mini-Ranger 2 was made only after a detailed comparison of competing USBL technologies. This concluded that it’s attractive price and features will meet all of our needs.”
