‘Polarcus Alima’ mobilized off Cote d’Ivoire

Polarcus has reported that Polarcus Alima has been mobilized for a dual-azimuth proprietary 3D seismic survey offshore Cote d’Ivoire, West Africa.

The survey, for an undisclosed client, will cover an area of approximately 1,800 square kilometers and will involve the technologically-advanced seismic vessel towing a ten streamer receiver spread in two different azimuths, designed to optimally image the client’s geological objectives in the near shore shallow water blocks. The survey is expected to run for approximately two months.

The purpose-built seismic vessel is equipped with specialized, advanced maritime technology to minimize the environmental footprint of the operation and the vessel continues to set new standards for the industry, having been awarded the highest achievable Triple-E(TM) environmental and energy efficiency rating by DNV-GL, the world’s leading ship and maritime classification society, said Polarcus in the release.

Delivered in Q1 2011 Polarcus Alima is an ultra-modern, high ice class, 12 streamer 3D/4D seismic vessel. Built to the ULSTEIN SX134 design and incorporating the innovative ULSTEIN X-BOW® hull, Polarcus says this vessel combines the latest developments in maritime systems with the most advanced seismic technology commercially available. The vessel is also amongst the most environmentally sound seismic vessels in the market with diesel-electric propulsion, high specification catalytic convertors, double hull and advanced ballast water treatment / bilge water cleaning systems. This vessel complies with the stringent DNV CLEAN DESIGN notation.
