Polarcus Nadia and Polarcus Naila are technically-advanced 3D seismic vessels capable of towing up to 12 streamers. They will each feature two MacGREGOR hydraulically-operated platforms designed and manufactured to the shape of the surrounding shell plating and delivered with pre-assembled coaming and ready tested in workshop. In open position, the platforms are supported by preventer stays and designed to carry a load of 500 kg.

MacGREGOR's scope of supply per ship-set includes:

  • two ready painted and preassembled doors with coaming
  • two hydraulic power units with components
  • two electric starter boards, control panels and components
  • operating and maintenance manuals

The vessels are planned to enter service by the end of this year.
