Aberdeen-based Veripos, suppliers of high-precision GNSS positioning services for offshore applications, is to provide dedicated positioning support for a number of Platform Supply vessels (PSVs) operated by Rem Offshore, the specialist Norwegian company which maintains a global fleet of ships.

Under the new agreement, which extends present contract arrangements between the two companies, Veripos will provide the PSVs with a combination of its proprietary Standard and Standard2 GNSS data augmentation positioning services, the latter designed to increase the availability of GNSS observations during periods of local masking, ionospheric scintillation or inadequate GPS geometry; both are capable of providing typical accuracies of 1-2 meters over ranges between 1,000km and 2,000km.

Commenting on the new agreement, Angus Scott, Vice-President of Veripos’s Europe, Africa and Middle East (EAME) regions, said it signified a further important stage in a continuing working relationship with Rem Offshore in its acknowledged role as a leading supplier of offshore vessel services to the oil and gas industries.
