SEISMIC SURVEY: Off to the Russian Arctic

The Research Seismic Survey Vessel Kommandor Stuart, owned by Hay Ships Ltd of Aberdeen, recently finished undertaking a seabed testing and sampling campaign off northern Norway. The 1976-built vessel has a gross tonnage of 1,286 but is only 200dwt. She carries a considerable amount of specialised equipment for seabed testing and taking samples.

The vessel has recently headed north, with Calecore’s geophysical vessel Kommandor Calum (1986) and Geotechnical Borehole vessel Highland Spirit (1998), to begin a multi-year contract in the Russian Arctic. It is anticipated that this Barents sea survey could take up to three years. Kommandor Stuart, built as Herjolfur, was renamed Galo in 2000, and she has had her current name since 2006. RC
