Electromagnetic Geoservices (EMGS) has increased its investment in technology developed by Sonardyne International, UK.
The Ranger 2 Gyro-iUSBL system which combines acoustic positioning and inertial navigation technologies is the second system now owned by EMGS.
It will be fitted to one of their towed electromagnetic sources which operate in water depths down to 4,000 meters.
The purchase was announced on the opening day of the EAGE annual conference in Paris, the company noted.
Trevor Barnes, sales manager for Exploration at Sonardyne said, “We delivered the first Ranger 2 Gyro-iUSBL system to EMGS in 2013, and at the time it was one of the most technically complex, but highly successful system integrations we had ever undertaken.
“Over the last four years it has been proven to meet all of EMGS’ requirements and we’re delighted with their decision today to invest in a second system.”
