Subsea Technology and Rentals (STR) has boosted its equipment inventory with the purchase of a Sonardyne Mini-Ranger 2 Ultra-Short Baseline (USBL) underwater positioning system.
Mini-Ranger 2 has the ability to simultaneously track up to 10 subsea targets over ranges of up to 995 meters, extendable to 4,000 meters, the company explained.
Scott Johnstone, STR’s managing director said: “STR are delighted with the addition of the Sonardyne Mini-Ranger 2 systems to our rental inventory. With systems already in our rental pool, we are seeing an increase in customer demand and through continuous investment, this will allow STR to service our customers and continue to deliver cost effective solutions for the latest marine technology.”
Paul Griffiths, sales manager with Sonardyne, added: “Mini-Ranger 2 is the ideal technology to support short-term surveys and projects. In standard configuration, it can be shipped internationally without the need for an export license and once it arrives at a client’s location, it can be installed and ready to begin work in a few hours. We’re confident that STR will quickly see a return on their investment.”
