Old but interesting..... Feb 2003

Leading rental company, Ashtead Technology of Aberdeen will be the first organisation to obtain the eagerly awaited TSS 440 pipe and cable tracker. Deliveries are due to begin from VT TSS Ltd, of Witney, UK, in February. By early...

Spring Ashtead will have eight of the new high performance trackers available for rental from its offices world-wide. The 440 has a tracking range up to 50 per cent greater than its predecessor and this is expected to make it possible for users to complete pipe and cable surveys that have not been possible previously.

The TSS 440 has been developed as the successor to the TSS 340, which is acknowledged as the world’s most successful pipe and cable tracker with over 200 in use globally. Ashtead has over 20 of the TSS 340 trackers that it has been renting to customers for a number of years. “The 340 has been a world-wide success for us,” explained Rob Phillips, group managing director of Ashtead. “They have been used successfully in shallow and deep water and we now expect the 440 to be even more generally used as it has a wider capability.”
