STR Invest in 106G Series Submersible GPS from Applied Acoustic Engineering

Subsea Technology & Rentals Ltd (STR); global specialists in the design, production and rental of advanced subsea technology for the offshore industry are pleased to announce the purchase of a 106G Series Submersible GPS from Applied Acoustic Engineering Limited. This recent purchase represents a further investment in advanced technology from STR as they continue to increase their equipment rental inventory.

The 106G is an additional GPS receiver designed to survive immersion that complements the operation of a nearby standard subsea positioning beacon.

This arrangement is suited to coastal construction tasks where submersible vehicles may periodically break the surface.

Whilst submerged, positioning data is provided by a standard positioning beacon but once the vehicle breaks the surface the 106G takes over to provide the information required, typically cabled to the vessel based positioning system via the vehicle umbilical.

“Our Specialist Engineering Department designed this new 106G receiver to meet some customer specific requirements when working in the near shore environment,” explained Applied Acoustics’ Technical Manager, Neil MacDonald, “so we’re really pleased that STR has chosen to add this product to its equipment pool and make it available to the wider industry sector.”

Neil Jackson, Sales and Operations Manager at STR commented on their recent purchase: “STR are keen to develop alliances with well-established manufacturers like Applied Acoustics and this latest investment will enable us to offer cost effective, high quality GPS solutions to support our customers’ operations.”
