Veripos Moves to New HQ

The new building comprises a state-of-the-art network control centre, a research and development laboratory, workshops, a warehouse and dedicated training facilities in addition to an operations centre for the company’s Europe, Africa and Middle East Region. It also houses offices for all other Veripos global and corporate functions.

Company CEO Walter Steedman says the new premises have been specifically fitted out to meet the requirements of a growing client base while ensuring sufficient capacity for future expansion. Latest contracts for the 120-strong company include a further three-year deal with UTEC Survey, one of the world’s largest independent hydrographic organisations with bases in Australia, Brazil, Canada, Indonesia, Italy, Singapore, UAE, UK and the US.

Under the agreement, Veripos will continue to provide UTEC with a full range of its proprietary facilities including its latest Apex2 and Ultra2 Precise Point Positioning (PPP) services utilising both GPS and Glonass correction data to produce decimetre-level accuracies while ensuring continuous availability and service redundancy.

Support resources include a series of purpose-designed integrated mobile receivers as well as a range of software elements. Meanwhile, UTEC says that it has just been awarded by Saipem the largest pipelay support survey and positioning contract in Australia involving laying of an 889km pipeline between offshore Western Australia and an onshore gas processing plant near Darwin.
