Sonardyne Logo (Sound In Depth)Delivering Trusted Solutions For Subsea Acoustics

Over three days last week, more than fifty leading equipment users and specifiers from offshore contracting, survey and rental companies dropped into Sonardyne International’s Aberdeen office for an introduction to the Company’s new 6G® (Sixth Generation) hardware platform.

The roadshow event was organised by Sonardyne’s Survey Support Group to present the operational benefits of 6G® following the worldwide launch of the new technology three weeks ago at the Oceanology International exhibition in London.

During a series of 90 minute sessions, Sonardyne’s Senior Surveyor Edd Moller explained to packed audiences how the ultra-wide bandwidth signal architecture built into 6G® systems provides exceptional subsea navigation, communications and inertial positioning performance. The new technology makes Sonardyne acoustic systems faster, easier to set up and operate, and more robust even in the most challenging subsea operating environments.

Many of those attending the roadshow last week were highly experienced Sonardyne equipment users so it proved helpful to refer to projects already completed using 6G®. “Even though we only launched 6G® at the beginning of March, the equipment has already proven itself offshore and showed outstanding performance during the live in-water demonstrations we held in the dock during Oceanology,” said Regional Sales Manager, Barry Cairns. “The data we’ve been able to show customers clearly demonstrates how the features built into 6G® will improve the efficiency of their field development projects, reduce vessel time and generate cost savings,” he added. “The level of attendance for the event exceeded all expectations, with standing room only on several occasions.”

Over the next few weeks, Sonardyne’s 6G® roadshow heads to Europe, the Gulf of Mexico and South-East Asia. For more details and dates, please email: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
