UK: Ashtead Technology Announces Purchase of Sonardyne 6G Technology

Leading subsea equipment rental company Ashtead Technology has announced the purchase of $1.4m of Sonardyne 6G subsea acoustic positioning equipment. The announcement was made on the opening day of the Oceanology International 2012 exhibition and conference in London.

The new equipment will be added to Ashtead Technology’s extensive worldwide rental fleet and includes Compatt 6 transponders equipped with sound velocity, digiquartz and inclinometer sensors, ROVNav6 LBL transceivers, GyroCompatt6s and acoustic release transponders.

6G equipment uses faster and more robust Wideband 2 digital ranging and telemetry protocols. This makes using any system more reliable and easier to operate, thereby minimising operational risk, saving vessel time and reducing personnel training requirements.

Speaking at the show, Mark Derry Managing Director of Ashtead Technology said: “This purchase reflects the growing customer demand for 6G equipment and supplements our fleet of MK5 LBL equipment and our recent purchase of 6G USBL systems which have proven to be very popular.

Barry Cairns, Vice President of Europe and Asia at Sonardyne said: “We are delighted that Ashtead Technology has demonstrated its continued commitment to Sonardyne and our 6G technology with this purchase.”
