Aberdeen-based global rental and marine technology supply company, Seatronics Ltd has placed an order for twelve new Saturn 30 Subsea Attitude and Heading Reference Systems (AHRS) that were launched at Oceanology International by Teledyne TSS in London. Seatronics has also taken options on a further 38-units making the initial buy projected quantity fifty.
David Currie Managing Director of Seatronics commented on his choice of the Saturn system: “We want to maintain our reputation for having the latest and most advanced products available for our customers to rent so the new Saturn technology was an obvious choice for us. We have great confidence in Teledyne TSS products and are already able to supply a wide range of them to our customers. When the Saturn was launched it was natural for us to add it to our inventory.”
The new Saturn systems are available in two versions both with surface and subsea models. The Saturn 10 systems are designed to support the offshore construction, ROV, surface navigation and multibeam survey sectors where reliability, competitive pricing and performance are essential.
Saturn 30 is designed as a solid-state attitude and heading reference system (AHRS) for primary surface and subsea navigation. It is a compact and highly reliable unit which makes it ideal for all sizes of vessel and especially for smaller craft such as fast ferries, yachts and small patrol craft where space is at a premium.
Saturn has been based upon state-of-the-art fibre-optic gyro technology that has been developed and manufactured by Teledyne TSS at its modern headquarters in Watford, UK. The Saturn product family also incorporates advanced digital signal processing and algorithm design to deliver a highly accurate and reliable product to meet the demanding needs of the marine and offshore market. All units are compact, lightweight in both air and water and provide a superior alternative to other products currently on the market.
