C & C Technologies acquires Northern ResolutionNews // May 13, 2005
The 247ft Norwegian flagged vessel was purchased to assist in the acquisition of geophysical and geotechnical data. The vessel has accommodations for 50 passengers and can transit at a speed of 12 knots for up to 50 days duration.
Currently, Northern Resolution is dry-docked in New Orleans for modifications, which included hull-mounting an EA 600 deepwater single beam profiler and EM 120 multibeam, installing the launch and retrieval system for C & C's new C-Surveyor II AUV and making alterations to the vessel's design to ensure efficient operations.
Although the majority of the projects intended for Northern Resolution are AUV assignments, the vessel will also be mobilized to perform conventional geophysical surveys and deep water geotechnical soil sampling.
