S3 vessels to install Veripos positioning

Veripos reports that it has been commissioned by Aberdeen-based Specialist Subsea Services (S3), the survey, positioning and ROV subsidiary of the Reef Subsea group of companies, to supply facilities and equipment aboard two of its new multi-purpose vessels, Reef Despina and Reef Larissa.

Under the agreement, both 98.6m vessels, which have been chartered by S3’s parent organisation, Reef Subsea, are being provided with Veripos’s Ultra Precise Point Positioning service.

Veripos says that this system helps to remove or minimise GPS system errors by direct calculation, precise modelling or estimation, offering continuous decimetre-level accuracies globally with a typical correction update rate of 30 seconds.

Associated facilities for each of the Ulstein-designed vessels, including Veripos LD2-GGT2 integrated mobile units incorporating demodulators and multi-frequency receivers, will be supplied, supported by Verify QC software for real-time position and quality control information.
