Another successful Fanbeam®* to CyScan® Mk4 system upgrade onboard the Edda Fonn

February News

Guidance Marine's CyScan Mk4 upgrade programme allows vessels to upgrade their legacy CyScan® and Fanbeam® sensors. Edda Fonn, a supply vessel in Norway recently did just that, upgrading their Fanbeam® to the latest CyScan Mk4 sensor. Installed by our Norway-based service partner VICO in just under a day, the installation was a straightforward exchange as the vessel were able to use the existing Fanbeam® PSU and cables, due largely in part to the Fanbeam® to CyScan conversion kit.

The Edda Fonn upgraded to the CyScan system because of Guidance Marine's industry leading 3 year standard warranty, and after trouble with the Fanbeam® unit, the anticipation and expectation of improved performance as a result of the newly installed CyScan Mk4 sensor.

Although the price of oil has caused trepidation amongst some companies, Guidance Marine believe that the fleet owners must have the vision to understand the need to upgrade their fleet as the right move. Guidance Marine continue to recognise our customers' need to maximise vessel uptime, keep fleet costs to a minimum, and have high specification vessels capable of winning the highest value contracts.
