To enhance its offering for energy sector customers working in the US Gulf of Mexico region, Unique Group’s Houston office has added two Ranger 2 Ultra-Short BaseLine (USBL) positioning systems, complete with HPT 5000 transceivers and survey-room hardware and software to its survey equipment rental pool. The technology was chosen specifically for its ability to be quickly mobilised on vessels of opportunity and to surpass the stringent positioning specifications geophysical and geotechnical customers in the region need for their projects.
Syed Taqvi, Regional Vice President – Americas, at Unique Group commented, “Our capital equipment investment decisions are driven by market demand, and our customers in the Gulf of Mexico are certainly demanding Sonardyne’s Ranger 2 time and time again. It offers excellent positioning from shallow to deep water, it is quick to install on vessels-of-opportunity, and there’s a huge base of trained operators in the Gulf of Mexico who know how to use it to its potential.”
Char Franey, Sales Manager for Sonardyne in Houston said, “Every underwater tracking project is different; different water depths, different vessels to operate from and different targets to position. That’s why we’ve engineered Ranger 2 to be versatile with an impressive features list that come as standard. We’re confident Unique Group will see high utilisation rates for their new Sonardyne hardware this season and beyond.”
