Okeanus Upgrades Nortek Signature55 System for Real-Time Data Interpretation

Okeanus Science & Technology, LLC (Okeanus) recently upgraded its Nortek Signature55 ADCP System and purchased the software necessary to deploy it from vessels or stationary platforms while allowing the data to be read in real-time. This upgrade was in response to a need presented to Okeanus by one of its clients operating in the US sector of the Gulf of Mexico.

Okeanus worked with Nortek, who designs and manufactures the Signature55, along with Automasjon og Data (A&D) who developed the DADAS software which allows the ADCP to read the profiling data in real-time.

“We are pleased to see that our Signature55 has gained acceptance within the oil and gas industry as a reliable long-range ADCP. The instrument provides low lifetime ownership cost, and was built to meet stringent requirements set out by the US federal Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM),” says Atle Lohrmann, CEO of Norwegian tech firm Nortek.

“This upgrade is another example of Okeanus’ commitment to innovation, and our commitment to providing our customers with the most technologically advanced equipment available,” says Benton LeBlanc, president of Okeanus.

“Our interest is in supporting our customers’ initiatives by deploying capital into cutting edge technology that will make them more efficient and competitive in the oceanographic marketplace. Through lease or sale, we can provide our customers with turnkey solutions that will help them to get the job done,” LeBlanc adds.
