Seatronics, an Acteon company, has doubled its stock of Sonic 2024 Multibeam Echosounders with the acquisition of eleven new systems from long-term supplier R2 Sonic.
Responding to increased need for hydrographic surveys, Seatronics have more than doubled their stockholding of Sonic 2024 systems with an investment in excess of $2 million.
The Sonic 2024 is a broadband – wideband high resolution shallow water multibeam echosounder suited for small survey vessel, ROV or AUV operations.
Phil Middleton, Group managing director, Seatronics, said: “Our customers demand high performance yet reliable and cost-effective technology, the R2Sonic 2024 MBES system ticks all these boxes hence our confidence to invest significantly in the product range. Our continually expanding fleet of subsea visualization and mapping technologies is unrivalled within our industry. I’d like to thank Andy Williamson of Underseasense, the official distributor of R2Sonic in Scotland, for the local service and support received in our UK headquarters.”
Jens Steenstrup, president of R2Sonic, stated: “We are thrilled to have supported Seatronics significant investment in new Sonic 2024 systems. These systems include the Ultra High Resolution (UHR) option making them state-of-the-art Multibeam EchoSounders (MBES) for offshore applications. We’re committed to continuing to provide Seatronics best-in-class service and technical support, so that together, R2Sonic and Seatronics ensure outstanding surveyors experience.”
