An Otto Marine vessel GO Phoenix has left Singapore last week to participate in a search for the missing Malaysia Airlines MH370 aircraft in the southern Indian Ocean.
As Next Insight reports, GO Phoenix will participate in a search along with two other vessels Fugro Discovery and Fugro Equator.
These vessels, using towed vehicles equipped with side scan sonar, synthetic aperture sonar, multi-beam echo sounders and video cameras will be deployed to locate and identify MH370.
GO Phoenix is a 21,000 bhp ultra large AHTS (anchor handling tug supply vessel).
