An Aberdeen company providing marine technology services, Nautronix, yesterday announced another Norwegian deal.
It has received a contract from Acergy for chamber communications on board the Acergy Discovery.
The value of the deal is not being disclosed, but is thought to be worth more than £300,000.
Nautronix said that, in the past six months, it had received orders worth nearly £2million for its diver-communications systems. A large proportion of these are bound for Norwegian waters, including contracts from Divex for the Subsea 7 vessel Seven Atlantic and the Technip vessel the Skandi Arctic.
Vessel systems manager Andy McAra said: “Our orders to Subsea 7 and Technip are the biggest communication systems we have supplied over the last 25 years, with extensive communication and entertainment networks.”
Nautronix managing director Mark Patterson said: “The latest order adds to the company’s success in Norway following the £4million contract in July from a Norwegian company for the supply of two NASDrill RS925 systems.
“We hope to see this success continue over the rest of the year, not only with dive comms and NASDrill RS925, but also NASNet.
“There are identifiable targets for NASNet in Norway and we can offer numerous benefits to the subsea operations through systems use.
“As a result, we will be making a big push in the Norwegian market in the coming months.”
Nautronix provides through-water communication and positioning technology to the offshore industry.
Its leading product is the NASNet subsea acoustic positioning and navigation system.
