SEAMEC Princess upgrades

June 11, 2014

Diving support vessel (DSV) provider, Seamec Ltd. has chosen Sonardyne acoustic position reference technology to support its dynamic positioning operations. The company has upgraded the Ranger 1 system installed on the SEAMEC Princess to Sonardyne’s current generation ultra-short baseline (USBL) platform, Ranger 2 Pro.

Maintaining constant vessel position during subsea operations is critical for the SEAMEC Princess. Seamec specified the Ranger 2 Pro for its ability to operate with a network of transponders deployed on the seabed that offer positioning redundancy in all operating conditions. Ranger 2 builds on the functionality of Sonardyne’s original Ranger system adding support for sixth generation (6G) acoustic instruments and wideband 2 signal architecture.

 “The nature of the work carried out by the vessel demands that our DP system is continuously fed with good-quality position reference data. By opting for Ranger 2 in Pro configuration, we’ll be able to meet this requirement.” said K.T. Thomas, General Manager-Designate for Seamec Ltd.
