NKT Photonics to Supply Fiber Lasers to Oil Industry
BIRKERØD, Denmark, March 18, 2011 — NKT Photonics A/S has been awarded a volume contract to supply its low-noise Koheras Basik fiber laser modules to a nondisclosed party that will use them for a seismic application within the oil industry.
“We have been supplying units for qualification tests for over 10 years with this partner,” said Jakob Skov, CEO of NKT Photonics. “The combination of the harsh environment and high precision needed for seismic oil exploration is especially challenging, and it’s a breakthrough that our products have now been qualified for this extremely demanding application.”
The Koheras fiber laser is characterized by a very low frequency and noise intensity, and inherent single -frequency operation. It has been used in the oil industry for exploration and for monitoring the structural integrity of pipelines, in the defense sector for acoustic detection, and in the wind turbine industry for Doppler sensing.
