Tritech Sonar for Sistac ROV

MACSEA has sold a multibeam sonar Gemini, to remotely operated vehicle (ROV) providers Sistac Sistemas de Acesso.

Sistac initially hired a deep-rate Gemini to evaluate its performance during sea trials. The Gemini 720id multibeam sonar is now the primary sonar onboard Sistac’s Soil Machine Dynamics (SMD) Atom Work-Class Remotely Operated Vehicle (WROV).

The ATOM ROV is stationed on board the Sistac Vitória vessel, which is hired by Petrobras for ROV and dive support operations.

The sale of Gemini follows the opening of Tritech’s dedicated support hub with its partner MACSEA.

Mario Gonçalves, Sistac, said: “Sistac is extremely pleased to have purchased the deep-rated Tritech Gemini to assist our operations in Brazil. We worked with MACSEA, a partner of Tritech, for a recent technical demonstration of the Gemini 720id multibeam sonar which validated the quality of the product and its suitability for our vehicle.”

Antonio Silva, Commercial Manager for MACSEA, added: “MACSEA’s aim is to serve the Brazilian market with locally-based equipment, we are therefore delighted by the sale of a Tritech Gemini 720id to Brazilian company Sistac for their WROV.”
