Offshore staff

BERGEN, Norway Fugro has won a three-year contract from PGS for the provision of satellite positioning systems for its entire seismic vessel fleet.

Fugro will supply PGS vessels with a number of completely independent global navigation satellite systems (GNSS). These systems include Fugro’s recently launched Starfix.G4, a GNSS service to use all available GNSS systems (GPS, GLONASS, Galileo and BeiDou), and Starfix.G2+, a global service offering centimeter accuracy in both position and height.

Cerys James, vice president Technical at PGS, said: “'Reliable, precise positioning technology is essential for modern seismic operations. The solution supplied by Fugro will ensure our entire fleet has highly accurate vessel positioning, along with precise source and streamer positioning.”
