VISAKHAPATNAM, MARCH 7: Unmanned underwater vehicles and devices help cut operation costs and enhance efficiency in oil and gas exploration, says Mr Srinivasa Raju, CEO of Geomardy. The local company is working in the field with two foreign partners. He added that many advanced technologies have defence applications.
Mr Raju was speaking at a meeting on unmanned maritime systems for oil and gas and naval projects organised by the Visakhpatnam chapter of the National Maritime Foundation here on Monday evening. He said the most advanced unmanned underwater vehicles and devices were available for undertaking sea-bed sampling, geotech and geophysical studies, offshore pipeline inspection, and support services.
CLIMATE CHANGE STUDIES
The devices and technologies would also be of great use to the Indian Navy and for climate change studies. He said his company – Geomardy had over a decade experience in the field. It had signed a memorandum of understanding with Global Fusion Inc, which is the holding company of C&C Tech and ASV Ltd, to introduce the technologies in India.
Mr Arthur Anthony Kleiner, Director of Government Programmes, C&C Technologies, US, spoke on applications of the technologies in different fields and their relevance to India.
Mr Vincent Dobbin, the Director of Business Development, ASV Ltd (UK), spoke about the advanced technologies in unmanned defence systems (drones) and also about the oil and gas industry. Dr Rangarajan, Director of the Naval Science and Technological Laboratory, and other experts spoke with the visiting experts. Prof Prasanna Kumar presided over the meeting.
VISAKHAPATNAM, OCT. 28:
Geomardy, a local company engaged in providing services in deep seabed engineering and underwater unmanned systems, has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with a US company, Global Fusion (a holding company of C&C Technologies Inc. and ASV Global Unmanned Systems ) recently, according to the CEO, Mr J. Srinivasa Raju.
Mr Raju said at a press meet here on Friday that Geomardy was engaged in providing innovative technological solutions to the defence sector, and ports and harbours on the east coast for the past few years.
“We are based at Visakhapatnam in the proximity of the Krishna-Godavari basin in the State where oil and gas exploration is going on both by the ONGC and several private companies. This tie-up with Global Fusion will enable Geomardy to bring in the cutting edge technologies, customise them to suit local needs and offer them to different companies in a cost-effective manner,” he said.
CLIMATE CHANGE STUDY
He said the technologies would make deep sea bed sampling, necessary in climate change studies, more precise and reliable. “Climate change has become such an important area of academic study and India wants to contribute significantly in the field. We need the technologies to fulfil the ambition,” he said.
He spoke about the applications in the Defence sector and how the tie-up would facilitate induction of new technologies into the field. “It is a very promising area and there is room for many more companies. At present, however, there are only three or four such companies based at Mumbai and on the east coast ours is the sole one,” he added.
Mr Raju said that Geomardy was providing opportunities to the post-graduates in geology, geo-physics and related fields to gain expertise in the latest technologies and improve their career prospects in the country and abroad.
