Seatronics, an Acteon company, has invested more than £1 million in the latest technologies, sensors and tools available from Tritech International Ltd, a Moog Inc. company. Many of the products will enhance the ROV tooling capabilities, which are available through recently acquired Acteon Company, J2 Subsea.
Phil Middleton, Seatronics deputy managing director said, “As part of our strong international growth plans for J2 Subsea, we are adding to our already extensive stock of dredge pumps by purchasing multiple Merlin, Super ZipJet and AZ10 suction anchor pumps. The investment we made in Tritech systems recently will ensure that our rental fleet delivers what customers expect from Seatronics: the latest in high-quality technology.
"Tritech products have long been a staple of the Seatronics rental fleet and are widely regarded as industry standard. Furthermore, we have seen rising demand for the Gemini sonar range and have received enthusiastic feedback from many clients using these systems to great affect under low visibility conditions in the Southern North Sea and offshore West Africa.”
Scott McLay, Tritech sales director, added, “Seatronics and Tritech have enjoyed a productive working relationship for many years. The investment Seatronics has made in Tritech’s suite of sensors, dredge pumps and sonars, notably throughout 2013, is testament to this. Our relationship with Seatronics is one we will continue to support throughout 2014 and beyond. The new investment will give Seatronics’ customers access to our latest technologies, sensors and tools.”
