Leica Geosystems today announced that it has won an order for 30 GPS 1230 surveying systems from Wolf Survey and Mapping, a division of Destiny Resources Services Partnership in Western Canada.
This is the second large order for Leica Geosystems’ GPS equipment from the Alberta-based seismic services company. In late 2004 Wolf took delivery of 65 GPS 1230 systems. Spatial Technologies, Leica Geosystems’ business partner in Canada, was responsible for winning the order, configuring and delivering the products, and providing technical support and training.
“Our experience with the first 65 units has been extremely positive,” said Joe Pilieci, executive vice president of Wolf Survey and Mapping. “We have seen significant productivity gains since we started using the Leica GPS systems, and we have been very impressed with their robustness and performance.”
“One important reason for choosing the GPS 1230 is its superb performance in difficult field conditions, such as under heavy tree canopies,” added Pilieci.
Rick Kurash, president of Spatial Technologies, said, “Leica Geosystems has become the preferred supplier of high-precision dual-frequency survey-grade GPS instruments in the Western Canadian seismic industry. A number of other seismic companies in the region have also purchased and deployed the Leica GPS 1230 systems.”
Wolf Survey and Mapping is a major supplier of seismic front-end services to energy exploration and production companies in Canada. The company uses the Leica GPS instruments for a wide range of applications in support of seismic exploration and surveying applications, such as staking out seismic lines, setting survey control and shothole drilling.
