Sonardyne, a specialists in subsea navigation and positioning technology, has opened its first permanent office in France to expand its presence in the region. The announcement follows the opening of a second Sonardyne office in Brazil earlier this year, underlining the company’s commitment to positioning the organization closer to the commercial and operational centers of its global customer base.

Located in Haut de Cagnes, 10 minutes from Nice International Airport, the new office will be staffed by Aude Kuchly who joined Sonardyne as sales manager in 2011.

Sonardyne’s acoustic, inertial, sonar and optical equipment is used by commercial, hydrographic and research organizations across Europe to support a wide range of underwater surveying and monitoring operations. In April, Sonardyne introduced Syrinx, its first Doppler velocity log (DVL) to aid the navigation of ROVs and AUVs.  

Opening a dedicated office in France will allow Sonardyne to have greater contact with users across southern Europe in order to better understand their application, identify future requirements and develop business relationships. Equipment stock holding, servicing, calibration and repair activities will continue to be handled through Sonardyne’s Europe and West Africa operations center in Aberdeen. 

"Being located close to clients through our international office network is a cornerstone of our business model” said Kuchly. "The new office will also provide specialist workshops and due to its location, offer deep water demonstrations in Villefranche sur mer.”
