A unique and successful drydocking project at Lisnave.
The Research/Survey vessel “Ramform Atlas” is a ultra-high-capacity seismic vessel with the highest quality standards, owned by PGS GEOPHYSICAL who has elected Lisnave Shipyard due to recognized know how, reputation, large dimension drydocks and excellent geographic location.
An efficient and successful 16 days drydocking project to carry out the main drydock maintenance works related to the vessel propulsion and steering system, the hull treatment and painting, upgrading of the seismic equipment, several mechanical units and miscellaneous pipe and steel repairs, among many others.
Seismic ships like “Ramform Atlas” acquire data for mapping and modeling the subsurface beneath the seabed. Energy companies use seismic data to increase the likelihood of finding oil and gas. Understanding the subsurface structures also reveals risks associated with drilling projects, like unstable layers, or gas pockets. Revealing shallow hazards is an important step in mitigating potential risks to marine eco-systems.
