    ST Marine delivers first seismic vessel

    Yard News // March 28, 2011

    ST Marine has successfully delivered its first seismic vessel, to Swire Pacific Offshore Operations (Pte) Ltd (Swire), a wholly owned subsidiary of Swire Pacific Limited.

    In December 2008, ST Marine announced the S$30 million contract to provide detailed design and to construct the 68m vessel for Swire.

    Work commenced in 2009. The contract from Swire was awarded on the back of a charter which Swire secured with a major player in the seismic market.

    Swire provided the basic design and major equipment, including the seismic survey equipment for the vessel.

    Pacific Finder  carries the ABS Class Notation +A1, +AMS, ACCU, E and Ice D0. The vessel also complies with the latest IMO MSC.266 (84) Code of Safety for Special Purpose Ships, 2008.

    Pacific Finder, a four-streamer vessel, is to be deployed to carry out seismic survey in shallow waters for oil and gas clients in the Asia Pacific region.
