Oceanscan, an established provider of sales and rentals of subsea, survey, NDT, inspection and ROV equipment, has announced the extension of its service offering with a significant investment in a range of new products from leading manufacturer, Valeport.
Oceanscan’s acquisition of a number of Valeport’s specialist instruments will also replace legacy systems and demonstrates Oceanscan’s continuing commitment to offer subsea clients the widest range of the latest technology. As part of the company’s investment, three Oceanscan technicians will receive bespoke training from Valeport to help clients get the best performance from the new equipment.
Among the new equipment is Valeport’s SWiFT SVP which features Bluetooth comms, a rechargeable battery, integral GPS and LED status indicators; the SVX2 combined CTD/SVP which provides superior sound velocity data combined with salinity and density; and the miniIPS Intelligent Pressure Sensor which delivers highly accurate and redundant depth information in real time.
Kevin Edwards, Valeport Sales & Marketing Manager, commented: “We have supplied Oceanscan for a number of years and are pleased to support the firm as it continues to grow. We design all our instruments with the users’ needs in mind and are confident that the latest Valeport technology will provide great benefits to Oceanscan customers.”
Adil Ali, Oceanscan Subsea Sales Manager, added: “Valeport’s technology and products are proven, high quality, reliable and ubiquitous, and these recent acquisitions will no doubt add new capability to our product offering. Oceanscan plans to make further investments to enhance our industry position as a leading supplier of subsea sensors and technology to the domestic and overseas subsea market.”
