Dolphin Hires Revamped Polar Marquis

High-capacity 3D seismic vessel, Polar Marquis has formally been taken on charter from GC Rieber Shipping for a firm period of 3.5 years with 2+2 years options, Dolphin Group ASA announced.

The vessel has just completed a significant seismic and propulsion upgrade, with a redundant and flexible engine package of 17.400 Kilowatts and more than 200 tons bollard pull.

According to Dolphin, Polar Marquis will provide the safe capacity to operate 16 streamers with 100 meters separation. This will put the vessel among the top ten seismic vessels in the world.

Polar Marquis is mobilising for her first contract survey in the Black Sea utilizing a record spread of 14 seismic cables with 100m separation, followed by an additional contract in East Africa.

The fleet of the Oslo-listed seismic contractor is scheduled to welcome another vessel, Super Duke, in March 2015.
