Russia’s Sovcomflot (SCF) will redeliver the seismic survey vessel Vyacheslav Tikhonov to the offshore geophysical company Polarcus in November 2019.
Polarcus in a statement refers to its announcement dated 10 June 2019 describing an extension of the bareboat charter for Vyacheslav Tikhonov, originally named Polarcus Selma including a redelivery option exercisable with effect from completion of the ‘charter-back’ for the wide-azimuth project (announced on 3 June 2019).
SCF has exercised this option and the Company currently expects the vessel to be redelivered in November 2019 following completion of the wide-azimuth project in the Americas.
The operator of a fleet of seismic research vessels worldwide said that it is discussing a number of potential projects with customers and will explore opportunities for the vessel after redelivery.
Polarcus operates a fleet of high performance seismic vessels with 3D and 4D imaging capabilities, which incorporate leading-edge maritime technologies for improved safety and efficiency.
