Veripos Wins Contract Extension with UTEC Survey

27 March 2019

VERIPOS, part of Hexagon’s Positioning Intelligence Division, announced a multiyear contract extension to supply GNSS services to UTEC, a global surveying company in subsea services group Acteon, on a worldwide basis.

Under the terms of the agreement, VERIPOS will upgrade existing GNSS hardware with their latest multi-constellation, multi-frequency receivers and supply UTEC with a full range of proprietary positioning services, including its latest Apex5 signal corrections and Quantum GNSS visualisation software.

John Macleod, General Manager of VERIPOS EAME said “We are pleased to extend our relationship with UTEC to support their offshore endeavours. A key area in our discussions with them was our continued development of GNSS positioning technology and solutions. As offshore operations are now encountering more incidences of intentional and non-intentional GNSS interference, our latest anti-jamming technology is designed to ensure the highest levels of signal integrity. This is recognised by key customers such as UTEC as a necessity to mitigate against costly offshore downtime.”

Neil Lawrence, Global Director, Projects & Operations at UTEC added, “We have worked closely with VERIPOS since 2005 and value both the quality of service and continuity that our long-term relationship provides.”
