Horizon adds new geoscience vessel

August 7, 2015

UAE-headquartered Horizon Geosciences has added a new vessel to its fleet for work in the North Sea and West Africa.

A multi-disciplinary IMCA and OVID approved DP1 survey vessel with a proven track record in the North Sea and Arctic, Kommandor Stuart was added to Horizon’s fleet to meet growing demand for Geophysical Survey services.

Rebuilt in 2006, the vessel has a large working deck and excellent features including a comprehensive survey laboratory with offshore data processing facilities.

Horizon Geosciences Business Development Manager Matthew Suchley commented: “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.”

Permanently fitted with a high resolution 500m range Multibeam Echosounder, a low frequency 3000m range Multibeam Echosounder, a hull mounted sub-bottom profiler as well as side scan sonars and magnetometers, the vessel is suited for site surveys and cable or pipeline route surveys.

In addition to these bathymetric and geophysical survey spreads, the vessel can also be mobilized with shallow sampling geotechnical equipment including vibrocorer, dropcorer or seabed CPT.

The vessel also has in built compressors for digital 2D high resolution geophysical surveys and an ROV can be quickly mobilized as required.
