Veripos has received an order for twenty of its LD3 modular integrated mobile positioning units from Alphatron Marine BV of Rotterdam, one of Europe's principal turnkey suppliers of marine navigation and communications equipment.
The units are to be installed by the Dutch company aboard a series of DP vessels currently being outfitted on behalf of a number of operators. Designed to generate Veripos proprietary positioning solutions from metre to decimetre accuracies, the systems can also be used as sensors to output received data and GNSS measurements to external processing or quality control software. They can be operated with both high and low-power satellite transmissions, given appropriate antenna configurations.
Alphatron Marine, which maintains additional bases throughout Holland as well as in Belgium, Germany and Singapore, has to date outfitted over 415 seagoing new build vessels of all types with marine electronics equipment. Commenting on the latest award Veripos Managing Director, Walter Steedman, said: "This contract further demonstrates that our products meet the demanding requirements of the marine market whilst remaining commercially attractive. We are proud to supply Alphatron Marine and look forward to serving the end users with our range of position solution services in the future."
