Tom Nicols of Geomatrix left, receiving his new seismic power supply, from Applied Acoustics’ Gavin Willoughby.

Director Tom Nicols of Geomatrix took delivery of his company’s first CSP seismic energy source from Applied Acoustics at Ocean Business in Southampton. Geomatrix, based in Leighton Buzzard, U.K., specialize in the sale and rental of an extensive range of land and marine geophysical products so the new energy source provides a welcome addition to its oceanographic equipment rental pool.
Applied Acoustics manufactures a variety of systems for sub-bottom profiling that extend in output from 50 to 12,000J. The 1200J unit selected by Geomatrix will operate with various Applied Acoustics’ sound sources including the triple boomer plate, the S-Boom, and the new long-life Dura-Spark 240 in the future.  Its flexibility means that just one power unit is available for high resolution and deep penetration geotechnical surveys in near shore or deeper water.
“We’re very excited about being able to offer this versatile equipment with its high standards of performance and numerous safety features to our clients. It complements the marine data acquisition options we have available to geophysical engineers investigating seabed characteristics,” said Tom Nicols, “and we fully expect it to become a key ‘workhorse’, supplying our customers with many of their seismic energy needs.”
