OSD-IMT Bags Research Vessel Order from TORI

OSD-IMT has secured an order for an IMT2001 scientific research vessel for the Taiwanese Ocean Research Institute (TORI).

It will be used for supporting long-term oceanographic observation programs including operating unmanned ROVs, terrain survey and mapping, seismic pattern detection, long-core sampling, compiling diagrams of topology and stratum and performing real-time data processing and sampling within its onboard laboratory facilities.

The IMT2001 will be fitted with two A-Frames, two deck cranes, an ROV launch and a recovery A-Frame with umbilical winch, streamer winch and gun array and a MEBO200 seabed drilling rig which can conduct core drilling down to 200 m below sea floor.

The 76m x 16m vessel will have accommodation for 43 persons and will be classed with Taiwanese Classification Society (CR) for world-wide operation.

Furthermore the IMT2001 will be equipped with diesel-electric power generation, two main azimuth propulsion thrusters and two bow tunnel thrusters with the dynamic position notation DP-1.

The vessel will be built by Triyards Shipyard in Ho Chi Minh City and is scheduled for delivery in August 2017.
