During a contract signing ceremony at Europort 2013, Maaskant Shipyards Stellendam, part of Damen Shipyards Group signed the contract to build an additional Seismic Research Support Vessel for Rederij Groen.

This latest contract follows last month’s order of two new Seismic Research Support Vessels (SRSVs) that are due for delivery in the third quarter of 2014. This third vessel, initially only an option, completes the latest phase of RederijGroen’s expansion and will be delivered in 2015. The new SRSV will be identical to the first two; 35 x 8.70 meters and propelled by two Azimuth thrusters, each powered by a 500 kW electric motor. Three Caterpillar gensets will provide electrical power.

Rederij Groen, whose fleet will now number 27 vessels, is planning to put the vessels to work in the seismic industry worldwide. The fleet includes SRSVs, guard boats and chasers such as the Aquarius-G and the Astra-G also built at Maaskant Shipyards. The new SRSV’s will often operate alongside other vessels, assisting with board-to-board transhipment of goods and equipment. Their design provides stability and maneuverability, crucial to this sector.

Rederij Groen owner Henk Groen said his company has a long relationship with Maaskant Shipyards: “We have worked with Maaskant Shipyards for 10 years now.”

Damen’snewbuild and repair yard in Stellendam has built all RederijGroen’s SRSVs, and the yard also performs maintenance and repair for their entire fleet.
