On Saturday 22nd March, Dolphin Geophysical & Sanco Shipping held a naming ceremony for the 3D seismic vessel Sanco Sword at Myklebust Yard in Norway.
The vessel is the second purpose built high capacity 3D seismic vessel to be delivered from Kleven Maritime’s Myklebust Yard in Norway to Sanco Shipping. She is the sister ship of Sanco Swift, also chartered by Dolphin.
Sanco Sword will work for Dolphin Geophysical on an initial 5 year firm period. Dolphin yesterday revealed that Sanco Swift, the sister vessel of Sanco Sword, would begin its seismic survey contract in South America.
