Island Offshore, Veripos Renew Positioning Services Contract

Island Offshore, leading suppliers of ship-borne marine services to the world offshore industry, has awarded Veripos a further three-year contract for continuing provision of precision GNSS positioning services for 16 DP vessels. This is in addition to another 6 due to begin service in the near future. The new agreement extends the working arrangement between the two companies which first began in 2007.

All the vessels are being supplied with Veripos’s latest Apex2 precise point positioning (PPP) service using both GPS and GLONASS networks as well a combination of its Apex, Ultra and Standard services to provide continuous GPS-derived augmentation accuracies of the order of 10cm.

An acknowledged leader in the development and supply of high-precision GNSS positioning facilities and equipment to the global offshore industry, Veripos maintains a worldwide operational presence supported by two fully-redundant network control centres in Aberdeen and Singapore, six regional offices and over 80 strategically-sited reference stations. It recently acquired independent fiscal status with a listing on Oslo’s Stock Exchange, Oslo Børs.

Island Offshore is one of Europe’s principal suppliers of marine operations providing a wide range of services to major offshore operators covering logistics and supply, anchor handling, subsea and increased recovery services. With bases in Stavanger, Ulsteinvik and Aberdeen, the company presently maintains a fleet of over 20 specialist support vessels.

Commenting on the renewed contract, Veripos Global Business Development Manager Richard Turner said: “It further consolidates our long-standing relationship with Island Offshore. We very much look forward to continuing to provide them with the best possible and most reliable of positioning services in support of their DP operations”.
