Shipdock working on Polarcus Naila

Dutch Damen Shipyards has today through social media shared photos of a seismic vessel being repaired in one of its yards.

The Polarcus Naila vessel, owned by the UAE-based seismic specialist Polarcus, is undergoing repairs and upgrades in the Shipdock shipyard, which Damen bought in February last year.

The 3D seismic vessel arrived at Shipdock Amsterdam in February this year, where its propulsion systems are now being upgraded, and the vessel is also undergoing modification works, so it can be classified as a Special Purpose Ship.

Furthermore, the scope of work includes Ballast Water Treatment installation, installation of a new workboat and davits, relocation of the MOB and the 5-year special survey.

Upon completion of the works in the shipyard, the Polarcus Naila is expected to begin a charter contract with Norwegian seismic survey company, TGS.  The charter is expected to last six months.
