Kongsberg secures back deck handling systems contract

Significant contract for leading seismic vessel equipment developer.

Kongsberg Evotec AS, a Kongsberg Maritime company, will provide the complete back deck solution for handling of up to 20 streamers simultaneously aboard a GC Rieber owned new-build seismic exploration vessel, awarded by builder Kleven.

The ST324XT designed by Skipsteknisk in Ålesund, will be built at Kleven’s shipyard Myklebust Verft in Sande, Norway, and will be operated by Dolphin Geophysical from Bergen. The vessel can tow up to 20 streamers and features the most advanced technology for handling of cables, wires and ropes. Each streamer winch can contain up to 12,000 meters of streamer cable, giving this vessel high 3D capacity.

The delivery comprises all the back-deck equipment needed for safe and efficient handling of all on board seismic equipment.

Kongsberg Evotec moved into brand new offices and fabrication facilities in the autumn of 2012. It will leverage its advanced new engineering and fabrication/test facilities to deliver this project on-time and to specification. These extensive new facilities support Kongsberg Evotec’s focus on developing innovative technical solutions for the demanding offshore market.

Delivery of the full back-deck handling system is expected to start in spring 2014.
