Veripos has recently been awarded a master services contract for supply of high-precision GNSS positioning services and equipment in support of a new advanced fleet of Ulstein-designed vessels, by Polarcus, a leading Dubai-based 3D seismic exploration company.
Under the contract, Veripos will provide each of four new Polarcus vessels with a combination of its Ultra Precise Point Positioning global service for decimetre-level accuracies, together with LD2-G2 integrated mobile receivers and Verify QC software for real-time monitoring and quality control.
The first two 12-streamer vessels, Polarcus Nadia and Polarcus Naila, are already operating in the North Sea. Polarcus Asima, the world's first true Arctic-ready 12-streamer vessel was launched this month and will work initially in the Black Sea. A further new environmentally-responsive vessel, due to be provided with Veripos GNSS positioning support later in Q3 this year, will be a wide-tow 6-streamer, Polarcus Samur.
