ABERDEEN, UKNautronix has secured an order from HHI Korea to supply a NASNet dynamic positioning reference (DPR) system that will be used on the Bollsta Dolphin drilling rig.

The NASNet DPR system has the benefits of the NASNet subsea acoustic positioning system and can be used either within pre-installed fieldwide NASNet arrays, or as a localized positioning system.

The system also provides robust mitigation against many of the risks associated with both acoustic and satellite positioning systems, allowing multiple users to benefit simultaneously from the same array with no risk of interference. NASNet DPR uses acoustic technology combined with a user-friendly interface to provide high-speed position updates and stable positioning in water depths up to 4,000 m (13,123 ft).
