Sonardyne Tech to Support DOF Subsea Ops in Brazil

first_imgDOF Subsea has chosen acoustic and inertial navigation technology from Sonardyne Brasil to support its deepwater operations from three vessels offshore Brazil.The three vessels will be equipped with Sonardyne’s SPRINT-Nav all-in-one subsea navigation instrument for underwater vehicles.A remote operated vehicle (ROV) on one of the vessels will also be fitted with a Sonardyne Syrinx Doppler Velocity Log (DVL), in place of its existing system. All three vessels are on long-term contract in Brazilian waters.DOF Subsea’s multiple SPRINT-Nav systems will be used to support ROV operations, as part of construction, inspection, maintenance and repair (IMR) work in Brazil’s deepwater pre-salt oil fields, in depths down to 3,000 metres.Andre Moura, sales & applications manager for Sonardyne in Brasil, said: “To meet stringent specifications for subsea inertial navigation, operators are more and more looking for high-performance instruments and our SPRINT-Nav meets their needs. SPRINT-Nav offers unmatchable performance.”last_img
