Is life on board your vessels any different from other seismic companies?

We believe so! Not only are our vessels all ultra-modern new builds, but they are leading the way in terms of both technology and comfort. The unique ULSTEIN X-BOW® hull design offers significantly improved passage alongside reduced noise and vibration levels throughout the ship, setting new standards for crew safety and comfort on-duty and off-duty.

Is the environmental agenda simply marketing?

Absolutely not! The founders of our company, conscious of the impact that fossil fuels have on the environment, wanted to establish a responsible service company that would do its utmost to operate projects in a sustainable manner. Throughout the design process of the vessels, every effort was taken to find and implement a range of solutions that will minimize our environmental footprint; from the fitting of exhaust catalysts that will significantly reduce our emissions to air, through to the selection of solid streamer technology. And the focus is not just offshore. Throughout our company policies and procedures that are implemented both offshore and onshore, we are pursuing several pioneering green initiatives. Our employees take pride in compliance with environmental standards and continually look for ways to improve and develop working practices to protect the environment.
