500th USBL system bound for the Baltic Sea
A significant milestone has been reached at Applied Acoustics with the announcement of the company’s latest contract to supply subsea positioning equipment to a major European subsea pipeline contract.
Contractors working in the Gulf of Finland in the eastern Baltic Sea have selected Applied Acoustics’ Nexus 2 USBL system to carry out sidescan sonar surveys in advance of engineering works as well as for use in marine archaeological operations. The award of this contract is notable as it marks the 500th USBL system that the Great Yarmouth, UK, based manufacturer has supplied to the marine industry, enhancing the company’s reputation as a leading provider of specialist subsea acoustic systems.
Key to the success of the system, and fundamental to its selection as part of this project, is its extremely reliable, stable and repeatable positioning performance that is delivered by the advanced Sigma 2 bi-directional acoustic protocols. Additional attributes that make the Nexus 2 the preferred choice include its intuitive user interface, its simplicity of deployment and overall versatility.
Commenting on this latest development, Gavin Willoughby, Applied Acoustics’ Sales Manager stated, “We’re absolutely thrilled that our products have been chosen for use on this contract, and it further endorses the fact that the quality of our systems, service and support have become the first choice for many marine surveyors throughout the world. We very much look forward to working with and supporting our client in this and future operations, as we look forward to reporting further successes in the years to come.”
