Aberdeen-based company Tritech informed that Rotech Subsea has purchased gemini narrow beam imager (NBI) systems.
The sonars are to be installed in single head or dual head configuration for use on Rotech’s RS range of excavation tools.
The Gemini NBI systems will run on the newly introduced Tritech Gemini 72VDC VDSL interface unit, which should supply the sonars with sufficient power to operate over a 300m cable.
Kevin Cargill, subsea operations manager, Rotech, said: “Rotech Subsea has witnessed first-hand the clear imagery of the Gemini NBI which has allowed us to successfully complete both inshore and offshore jobs including a recent harbour clearance where the sonar also provided continuous visualisation as we excavated towards the harbour wall.
“We have also used the Gemini NBI in cable de-burial and post-trenching projects where continuous observation of the task was critical. We are, therefore, confident that the Gemini NBI systems will further enhance the capabilities of our RS range of excavation tools in visibly-challenging environments.”
