Warwick, RI – November 16, 2009
FarSounder is pleased to announce the receipt of new orders for the offshore oil and gas industry.
Brittania-U Nigeria Limited, a medium-sized, fully integrated Nigerian Oil and Gas company in Victoria Island, Lagos, has purchased the first two systems of a three vessel project. Offshore supply vessels Prince Edward and Princess Royale have both installed FarSounder’s FS-3DT Forward Looking Sonar.
Commenting on the sale Ian Bowles, VP Sales & Marketing says; “ While we have sold to other commercial vessel operators, including survey vessels, this is the first real foray into the offshore oil and gas industry”. The FarSounder Forward Looking Sonar is growing in reputation as a standard navigation product for various vessel types, including cruise ships, luxury yachts and specialized operators. “We are very excited about these particular orders as they reinforce the importance that this technology brings to the navigating table. Ship operators truly can have the ability to see what is ahead of them underwater”, continued Bowles.
Brittania-U principal Madam Uju Ijejika, working with Total Instrument & Electrical Services, ordered the sonars through FarSounder dealer Mackay Marine in Houston. Installation and commissioning were performed at Bollinger Shipyards in Morgan City, Louisiana.
