Polarcus Limited announced 25 January that after a successful mobilization the seismic vessel Polarcus Nadia has now entered into production on its first project, offshore Liberia.

The contract is the previously announced Seismic Charter Agreement that Polarcus entered into with TGS on 10 December 2009.

The survey is being acquired with a 10 streamer seismic array, each streamer being 7,200 meters long and with 100 meters separation between streamers.

The seismic vessel Polarcus Nadia is designed by Ulstein Group and the vessel is also equipped with the package ULSTEIN IAS®, ULSTEIN COM IP®, ULSTEIN NAV® and ULSTEIN PMS™ from Ulstein Group.

She is the first of a series of four vessels to be built at Drydocks World – Dubai (DDW-D)

MP Singh, Director – New Building, DDW-D, said at the time of her delivery (December 2009-): “The delivery of Polarcus Nadia is a milestone for us in the newbuilding division. This is the most advanced vessel built at the yard, which shows how far we have come in handling highly sophisticated projects. The work was completed well within time – demonstrating our yard’s reliability and capability to meet deadlines.”

DDW-D has been on a comprehensive facility and service expansion drive with the aim to achieve highest level capability in taking up most sophisticated projects in newbuilding, repair and conversion. The yard has won several international recognitions this year, including the Lloyd’s List Shipbuilding/Shiprepair Award 2009. It has been named the Lloyd’s List Shipyard of the Year for four consecutive years, from 2005 to 2008.
