Sercel launches new broadband vibrator

CARQUEFOU, France -- Sercel has unveiled its new broadband vibrator, the Nomad 65 Neo, at the Geo 2014 convention in Bahrain.

The Nomad 65 Neo optimizes broadband acquisition, by bringing down the sweep start’s frequency at full drive from 7 to 5.4Hz. Therefore, the time spent in emitting the very low frequencies from 1Hz will be significantly reduced, with a positive impact on crew production and cost. The Nomad Neo will facilitate the recording of an extra low frequency bandwidth that has proved to be very beneficial for vertical resolution and seismic inversion. Many of the vibrator’s components have also evolved to provide improved ergonomics.

A newly developed  feature of the new Nomad 65 Neo is the IPM (Intelligent Power Management). This onboard software technology reduces environmental impact by performing an electronic control and regulation of the vibrator engine’s RPM to match engine load, allowing for an appreciable fuel saving. This option can also now be integrated into previous-generation Nomad 65 vibrators.
