Subsea Technology and Rentals Ltd (STR) have recently boosted its equipment inventory with the purchase of a Sonardyne Mini-Ranger 2 Ultra-Short Baseline (USBL) underwater positioning system.

Quick to install and simple to use, Mini-Ranger 2 has the ability to simultaneously and precisely track up to 10 subsea targets (e.g. divers, ROVs and structures) over ranges of up to 995 metres, extendable to 4,000 metres.

These features mean that Mini-Ranger 2 is ideal for nearshore operations on small survey vessels and construction barges that need survey grade positioning performance without the cost and complexity of a deep water USBL solution.

Scott Johnstone, STR’s Managing Director said "STR are delighted with the addition of the Sonardyne Mini-Ranger 2 systems to our rental inventory. With systems already in our rental pool, we are seeing an increase in customer demand and through continuous investment, this will allow STR to service our customers and continue to deliver cost effective solutions for the latest marine technology”.

Sales Manager with Sonardyne, Paul Griffiths, added; "Mini-Ranger 2 is the ideal technology to support short-term surveys and projects. In standard configuration, it can be shipped internationally without the need for an export license and once it arrives at a client’s location, it can be installed and ready to begin work in a few hours. We’re confident that STR will quickly see a return on their investment.”
