In pursuit of an upgraded strong motion seismic monitoring network for New Zealand, the Institute of Geological and Nuclear Science Ltd (GNS Science) is seeking to appoint providers who will be responsible for the supply, service, maintenance and support of strong motion recorders and ancillary components to supplement its expanding network. In essence, GNS Science is looking for an end-to-end service that supports its strong motion seismic network. GNS Science offers a highly-integrated system that facilitates data collection and real-time monitoring for natural hazards such as earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, tsunamis and landslides. This also includes the maintenance of equipment and system replacement, while continuing high performance and effective network operation.
GNS Science is responsible for managing the continuously expanding National Strong Motion network and the delivery of data services to other New Zealand organisations (Public and Private) in a timely and efficient manner. Over the years, GNS Science maintains and deploys strong motion sensors in strategic locations in New Zealand. This network evolves into a sophisticated hub of seismic stations that captures the strong ground shaking in New Zealand.
