Innovative research vessel and UHR seismic equipment offer turnkey marine survey solution to offshore industries in Northeast US
CSA Ocean Sciences Inc. (CSA), an international provider of marine environmental and geomatics services, today announced that it is joining forces with GEO Marine Survey Systems (GEO Marine), a global provider of quality geophysical products, software, and personnel focused on innovative high resolution seismic sparker systems, 24-bit recording, and ultrahigh resolution (UHR) streamers for 2D and 3D operations.
This strategic alliance will provide the US offshore renewables, marine engineering, government, and oil and gas markets with access to UHR seismic equipment and surveyors. The equipment will be housed at CSA’s Rhode Island facility, which offers direct vessel access to the heart of the US renewable market. Commenting on the new partnership, Gordon Stevens, Vice President and General Manager for CSA said: “Having recently completed a successful 90-day campaign for a major offshore renewable energy company, during which this seismic equipment performed flawlessly aboard our newly outfitted R/V Dolphin, it made perfect sense to extend our partnership with GEO Marine to continue offering this bundle of cutting-edge technology to the Northeastern offshore industries.”
The equipment can be rented with an operator direct from GEO Marine and installed onto a vessel of opportunity or chartered with the R/V Dolphin where fit-for-purpose mounting and operational apparatus have been fabricated and are permanently installed for efficient mobilization and operation. More about the vessel’s capabilities, which is HSSE approved by major offshore wind developers, can be found here.
Olivier Monrigal, Operations Manager for GEO Marine added: “Working with CSA and having the equipment in the US to support all projects not only helps mobilization costs for future projects, but also gives more companies exposure to our superior products.”
