Damen has delivered Aquarius-G and sistership Astra-G, two seismic chase vessels, to Rederij Groen in Scheveningen, The Netherlands.
The vessels were designed by Saltwater Engineering in close co-operation with Rederij Groen and Maaskant Shipyards Stellendam. Both seismic support vessels were constructed by Maaskant Shipyards Stellendam, part of Damen Shipyards Group.
“All of our other chase vessels so far involve converted fishing trawlers,” said Henk Groen, director and proprietor of Rederij Groen. “Having designed them to our specific needs right from the start significantly enhances the vessels’ performance."
