Havila Shipping ASA of Fosnavag, the leading Norwegian supplier of quality-assured supply services to international offshore companies with a fleet of dedicated vessels, has extended its present contract with GNSS positioning specialists Veripos until the end of 2015.
Under the renewed arrangement Veripos will continue to provide its Standard 2 dual-beam service aboard nine Havila Shipping offshore support vessels. The service features both GPS and Glonass capabilities in order to significantly increase observation redundancy while ensuring more robust worldwide positioning to accuracies of 1m or better. Ancillary equipment installed aboard vessels comprises a series of Veripos LD2 integrated mobile units for generating any proprietary positioning solution with options for output of data to external or quality control software; using comparable Veripos Apex2 and Ultra2 positioning services, the units are the only ones of their type capable of realising 10cm GPS-Glonass solutions.
Commenting on the contract extension, Veripos Executive Vice-President Commercial Richard Turner said it marked a further important stage in the company’s continued support for leading organisations within the Norwegian offshore industry.
