FSG Launches Seismic Vessel Amazon Warrior, Germany

Flensburger Schiffbau-Gesellschaf (FSG) today launched the first of two offshore seismic vessels for the WesternGeco concern. The ship was Hull No. FSG 760 and she was named Amazon Warrior.

What has so far been only theory has now become reality and everyone can see it”, said FSG Managing Director Peter Sierk. “Our shipyard has successfully broken new ground and consciously taken the first steps into what is, for us, a completely new market sector – one which has a lot of potential for the future.”

“It was certainly a very courageous move by WesternGeco to entrust us with this newbuilding order – simply because we had never built an offshore ship before. Despite that, our good points and our reputation persuaded WesternGeco to go ahead a year and a half ago and today we are, one and all, truly proud of this launch,” said Mr. Sierk.

Hull Nos. 760 and 763 are 127 metre long seismic ships and the biggest in the customer’s fleet. As far as efficiency, comfort, reliability and endurance are concerned, they satisfy the most stringent demands and guarantee safe operation throughout the world – even in the Arctic regions and in the worst weather conditions imaginable.

Ships of this type spend months, even years, in uninterrupted service at sea. Because of this WesternGeco places particular value on accommodation and working areas. There is space on each ship for 76 single cabins, rooms for leisure and communal activities and a large computer centre. Here data from the ship’s geological investigations are evaluated. The seabed measurement data are recorded by different types of cable streamers, hundreds of metres long, which the ships draw along behind them.
