Dolphin: ‘Polar Empress’ impresses

Dolphin has informed that the recently delivered 3D seismic vessel, Polar Empress, is in full production towing 14 streamers on the Maud Extension Multi-Client survey in the Barents Sea.

The vessel will in end of June mobilize for an exclusive contract with duration in excess of three months. According to Dolphin, the special purpose built seismic vessel, Polar Empress, is one of the most advanced vessel in the industry today. The vessel has a capacity to operate up to 22 seismic streamers, a total installed engine capacity of 22800 KW, a bollard pull in excess of 275 tons and a top transit speed in excess of 20 knots.

Dolphin’s CEO, Atle Jacobsen said: “The new high capacity vessel, Polar Empress, is the last high end vessel in a series of 6 , rigged and delivered according to our business plan over the last 4 years. She will be one of the most advanced and powerful seismic vessels in the world, fully equipped with Schlumberger’s proven Q Marine single sensor systems, coupled with Dolphin’s towing and handling solutions.

“Polar Empress will provide our clients with even more cost efficient and larger configurations than what is common in the seismic industry today. We are proud to yet again demonstrate our organisation’s ability to efficiently take a high-end vessel straight into production towing a 14 streamer configuration, with transit, shakedown and mobilisation in less than 2 weeks following delivery from Kleven yard in Norway. We expect the same excellent operational performance from the Polar Empress as delivered to client from the rest of Dolphin’s high end powerful fleet.”
