Geophysical equipments, like sparkers, have been manufactured to equip the ship and the various survey teams.
In the mid-80’s the survey activity declined, but the seismic equipment manufacture has developed, and SIG has started to be recognized by customers, who since have been consistent through the years.
In 1991 the company has been taken over by geologists. The manufacturing activity has been dynamized, the equipments which had been made for more than 30 years have been updated and upgraded to the new technological standards.
