Gardline’s new survey vessel Ocean Resolution has commenced survey operations after completing equipment trials earlier this year.
Ocean Resolution underwent a period of detailed planning, conversion, and commissioning, Gardline said, adding that the vessel has been purpose-designed to carry out surveys for the offshore wind and oil & gas sectors.
The company did not reveal the exact project on which the new survey vessel is working, nor the location.
The DP2 survey vessel has an 80-meter LOA and a beam of 18 meters, which is said to allow it to be configured with an array of high specification equipment.
It is capable of conducting simultaneous survey operations from a single mobilization including 2D & 3DHR seismic, shallow geotechnical with a 100kN CPT deployable through the vessel’s moonpool and environmental sampling through the side A-Frames.
“The Ocean Resolution is a true multi-purpose survey vessel offering unique solutions to our clients and adaptable to meet any survey requirement,” said Nick Bayfield, Gardline commercial director.
“The vessel is already proving very popular with a number of projects booked in 2021 with a wide variety of work scopes, demonstrating just how versatile she is.”
