PGS reveals Ramform Titan

Thursday, May 2, 2013

The new ship will be the most powerful and efficient marine seismic acquisition vessel ever and the widest ship in the world at the waterline. Safety and productivity have been the main focus points for its design. It is the first of four such vessels to be built in Japan.



The design dovetails advanced maritime technology to the imaging capabilities of the GeoStreamer seismic acquisition technology. Her 70 meter broad stern is fully exploited with 24 streamer reels: 16 reels aligned abreast and 8 reels further forward. Increased work space and advanced equipment mean safer and even more robust operations.

For PGS and its clients, more rapid deployment and retrieval of equipment, as well as greater operational capacity will translate into faster completion of surveys and increased up-time in marginal weather. The period between major yard stays is also extended by 50%.

Ramform Titan is equipped with 24 reels with capacity for 12 km streamers, which give it flexibility and redundancy. It carries over 6000 tons of fuel and equipment. It will typically tow a network of several hundred thousand recording sensors over an area greater than 12 km2, equivalent to nearly 1500 soccer pitches, or 3.5 times Central Park.

Ramform Titan provides a safe and comfortable living and working environment for up to 80 crew members, with 60 single cabins, and 10 twin cabins for visitors, all with separate bathrooms.
