RV Prince Madog Completes Survey in Irish Sea

RV Prince Madog Completes Survey in Irish Sea

P&O Maritime has successfully secured a 37 day charter, which began in February, for the Research Vessel Prince Madog with Osiris Projects.

This contract saw the Prince Madog engaging in its first hydrographic survey which utilised the recently installed RESON 7125 multi-beam echo-sounder system. Osiris Projects chartered the vessel to carry out a survey at the proposed Marine Conservation Zone ‘North St. Georges Channel’ in the Irish Sea, on behalf of the UK Government’s Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA).

The successful completion of this contract is a demonstration of the technical capability of the Prince Madog and consolidates P&O Maritime’s position as a provider of premium scientific and survey vessel solutions within the European market.

The Prince Madog is a modern state-of-the art scientific research vessel, which is operated out of Menai Bridge, North Wales. The 35 metre vessel is specifically designed to provide 24 hour, year round, operating capability. She is purpose built for providing a range of scientific and survey services including; geotechnical, geophysical, hydrographic, oceanographic and environmental services. The Prince Madog is also ideally suited to support a wide range of activities within the UK’s rapidly growing Offshore Renewables industry.

Through a Joint Venture company P&O Maritime has joint ownership of the Prince Madog with the Bangor University and is responsible for providing vessel management and operational support services.

Alan Rowan, General Manager, P&O Maritime, said “The securing of this contract with Osiris Projects demonstrates the technical capabilities of the Prince Madog. We look forward to providing similar survey services to our clients in the marine survey market and to exceeding our Clients’ expectations for the provision of vessel solutions.”
