Seatronics, an Acteon company, leaders in the rental and sale of marine electronic equipment, and 2G Robotics, leaders in high precision subsea measurement technology, are pleased to announce a global sales and distribution partnership. The 2G Robotics line of underwater laser scanners will now be available through Seatronics for equipment rentals and sales. Customers will benefit from global access to the high resolution and precision of the 2G Robotics underwater laser scanners and from the offshore expertise and global technical support provided by Seatronics.
The underwater laser scanners developed by 2G Robotics capture detailed 3D models of even the slightest variances in subsea environments and deliver 100x higher resolution than sonar. The high resolution of underwater laser scanning provides the accuracy and precision needed for making informed decisions, mitigating the problem of drawing conclusions based on information provided by sonar or video alone.
Jason Gillham, CEO at 2G Robotics, stated that “When searching for the right distribution partner, we felt Seatronics would be a natural fit. Seatronics, like 2G Robotics, strives to provide the most advanced technology in order to deliver optimal customer solutions. This partnership will be a great benefit to the customers of both 2G Robotics and Seatronics.”
Seatronics possesses extensive experience with high quality acoustic measurement solutions and specializes in a range of subsea operations including geophysical survey, ROV survey, ROV tooling and diving. The 2G Robotics line of underwater laser scanner will be an excellent complement to the existing acoustic measurement technology offered by Seatronics as the ULS line will provide subsea operators with increased measurement quality at shorter ranges.
Phil Middleton, Deputy Managing Director at Seatronics, said “This new exclusive agreement will contribute significantly to growth in our subsea visualization service capabilities by providing clients with useful data for purposes of integrity management on a global basis. Seatronics continues to build strategic relationships with innovative and respected manufacturers such as 2G Robotics, to further strengthen our ability to supply the latest developments in offshore and subsea technology.”
2G Robotics and Seatronics look forward to working together to provide the technology and support needed to better assist customers with their specific application needs.
