Subsea Technology & Rentals takes delivery of world's first Edgetech 2050-DSS Systems

Subsea Technology & Rentals (STR) is delighted to announce its ‘world first’ delivery of two EdgeTech 2050-DSS systems.

The systems have arrived at STR’s Perth Facility, where they are currently being prepared for operations in Asia Pacific. Jason French, STR’s Asia Pacific Regional Director, said “Our continuous investment, and strong partnership with EdgeTech has led to us being the first to offer this new technology to the subsea rental market. We continue to offer the very latest technology from our suppliers, and it is pleasing to see this equipment mobilise on its maiden project and committed to projects through to 2022 with our valued customers. I’m excited to see them performing in the field”.

Over the past twelve months, STR has invested in the continuous delivery of EdgeTech’s sonar imaging systems and underwater technology to support its global customers. With EdgeTech’s recent introduction of the new combined tri-frequency side scan sonar and high resolution sub-bottom profiling sonar systems, the 2050-DSS will provide customers with the ability to operate the systems on different frequencies simultaneously.

Doug McGowen, EdgeTech’s Director, Sales & Marketing, said “The versatility of the new 2050-DSS makes it a great asset in the subsea rental market. It is exciting to see the enthusiasm for this product by both the end-users and the companies that provide the tools and services enabling successful surveys throughout the world”.

The system can be provided with either a 120, 410 & 850 kHz towfish, or a 230, 540 & 850 kHz towfish. Both towfish options are equipped with a 2-16 kHz sub-bottom profiler, that utilises a PVDF panel receive hydrophone. Use of an area based receive hydrophone panel provides improved beam patterns and therefore improved signal to noise ratios, which in turn means cleaner data for the operators.

The 2050-DSS comes complete with a combined towfish, digital telemetry that runs over a single coaxial cable, a 19-inch rack mount topside interface, and EdgeTech’s DISCOVER acquisition software. The 2050-DSS can be integrated with several auxiliary sensors such as magnetometer and USBL responder. Additionally, an interface is fitted to the electronics so that the electronics and sensors can be mounted onto an ROV. The 2050-DSS is ideal for applications such as cable and pipeline surveys, marine construction surveys, pre and post dredging surveys and more.
