Subsea Technology and Rentals (STR), a provider of technology and services to the offshore marine sectors, has added two Sonardyne Syrinx Doppler Velocity Logs (DVLs) to its expanding rental inventory.
The order for two 4000-meter depth rated units was placed with Sonardyne International Ltd following demand from STR’s customers.
The Sonardyne Syrinx differs from other DVLs through its use of fully linear signal processing, low noise electronics and adaptive bottom lock. These features enable Syrinx to operate at altitudes over 50 percent higher than conventional 600 kHz DVLs with the high resolution performance of a 1,200 kHz DVL.
Syrinx can be employed as a standalone DVL, as part of an integrated navigation system or perform both functions at once, allowing both vehicle pilots and survey teams to simultaneously share the output from Syrinx.
Neil Jackson, Sales and Operations Manager at STR, commented on their new purchase: "We are excited to become the first rental company to invest in Sonardyne’s Syrinx DVL and anticipate a great demand for this product from our customers worldwide as we head into 2016.”
