Groen's order is the first time Maaskant has built seismic support vessels.
Dutch shipping company Groen has ordered two seismic research and support vessels (SRSVs) from Maaskant Shipyards in Stellendam in The Netherlands, part of the Damen Shipyards Group.
Maaskant has broad experience in maintenance and repair of offshore support vessels, but the order for SRSVs is a first.
Director Frits van Dongen said: “The Groen orders are a result of our approach towards offshore vessel design and construction and we are very proud indeed.”
The vessels have been designed in cooperation with Saltwater Engineering in The Netherlands to meet the needs and experiences of Shipping Company Groen.
