UAE-based marine survey and geotechnical services provider, Horizon Geosciences, has expanded its fleet with a new geophysical survey vessel the Kommandor Stuart, primed for work in the North Sea and West Africa.
The Kommandor Stuart is a multi-disciplinary DP1 survey vessel, rebuilt in 2006 featuring a large working deck and a survey laboratory with offshore data processing facilities.
The vessel is fitted with a high resolution 500-meter range Multibeam Echosounder, a low frequency 3000m range Multibeam Echosounder, a hull mounted sub-bottom profiler as well as side scan sonars and magnetometers.
In addition, Kommandor Stuart can also be mobilized with shallow sampling geotechnical equipment including vibrocorer, dropcorer or seabed CPT and can perform digital 2D high resolution geophysical surveys as well as have an ROV mobilized if required.
Horizon Geosciences Business Development Manager, Matthew Suchley, said: “Demand for Horizon Geosciences’ geophysical survey services has been such that we sought an additional specialist vessel to complement the Horizon Geobay.
We are delighted to announce the introduction of the Kommandor Stuart, a multi-disciplinary, geophysical survey vessel with a proven track record in the North Sea and Arctic.”
