Maaskant Shipyards Stellendam (NL), part of Damen Shipyards Group, has been contracted again by Rederij Groen (NL) after delivering two chasers, the Aquarius-G and the Astra-G, earlier this year. The new Seismic Research Support Vessels’ deliveries are planned in the third quarter of 2014, while shipowner Groen has taken an option on a third, identical vessel to be delivered in 2015.

The new SRSV’s will be 35 x 8.70 m and will be propelled by two Azimuth thrusters, each powered by a 500 kW electric motor. Three Caterpillar gensets will provide electrical power. Rederij Groen is planning to put the vessels to work in the Seismic Industry worldwide.

Like the earlier chasers, the new SRSVs will often operate alongside other vessels, assisting with board-to-board transhipment of goods and equipment. As seismic research is done at low speeds, stability and maneuverability are of the essence.

Damen’s newbuild and repair yard in Stellendam has a longstanding relationship with Rederij Groen, performing maintenance and repair for their entire fleet of more than 20 offshore vessels and having built all their other SRS vessels.
