The Institute of Geological and Nuclear Sciences Limited (GNS Science) is seeking to appoint providers who will be responsible for the supply and support of Digitisers and / or Seismic Sensors, and ancillary components to supplement its expanding network. In essence, GNS Science is looking for equipment suppliers to support its seismic network. Suppliers may tender for ALL or PART of our requirements. 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 operates, on behalf of multiple stakeholders, a New Zealand wide geophysical data collection network and geohazard monitoring service. The network consists of:
• 196 seismic sites
• 313 strong motion sites
• 215 GNSS sites
• 18 coastal sea level gauges
• 11 volcano cameras
• a number of Research & Development platforms and temporary installations
Data is transmitted over a communication network that includes multiple redundant pathways and over a thousand individual communications devices. Data is received, processed, and stored in a highly available hybrid-cloud environment. The field equipment and data collection systems are configured and operated using modern DevSecOps techniques. This RFP is seeking responses that will integrate with the performance, data, automation, and security requirements of operating this service.
GNS Science is responsible for managing the Geohazard environment and the delivery of data services to other New Zealand organisations (Public and Private) in a timely and efficient manner. GNS Science maintains and deploys geohazard monitoring equipment in strategic locations across New Zealand. This network has evolved into a sophisticated hub of seismic stations and geohazard monitoring stations
