    Ramform Tethys launched

    Vessel & ROV News // March 18, 2016

    PGS has celebrated the launch of its latest Ramform Titan-class vessel, Ramform Tethys, at a cermony at Nagasaki, Japan on 17 March.

    "With the increased power output and the back deck modifications we are enhancing the Ramform Titan-class acquisition platform further. Productivity, safety, stability and redundancy are the key benefits of these vessels. Their ability to tow many streamers gives high data quality with dense cross-line sampling and cost efficient acquisition with wide tows," says Per Arild Reksnes, EVP Operations.

    "This enormously stable platform has outstanding seakeeping characteristics that take full advantage of our GeoStreamer technology. Like her Titan-class sisters, she has the flexibility to encompass virtually any acquisition design. Safety, efficiency and productivity are the best in the industry."

    Jon Erik Reinhardsen, President and CEO of PGS, said: "Ramform Tethys further strengthens our fleet productivity and together with the other Ramform Titan-class vessels will enhance our competitive edge. In the current challenging market environment we are also experiencing more demand for our best capacity and Ramform Tethys will add to PGS ultra-high-end value proposition."
