    Swire Pacific Offshore has confirmed that it signed a shipbuilding contract towards the end of last year with Singapore Technologies Marine Ltd (ST Marine) to design, construct and build a new seismic survey vessel.

    Construction is scheduled to commence in May 2009 and delivery is planned for the second half of 2010.

    Said the company: "Swire Pacific Offshore has done extensive planning for this new build and will be providing the vessel's basic design and major equipment."

    Built to a length of 68m, the vessel will be capable of towing multiple streamers, built to Ice Class and delivered with a helideck. She will be capable of performing 2D and 3D surveys.

    "This new vessel is a welcome addition to Swire Pacific Offshore's seismic survey vessel fleet and will greatly assist its renewal and modernization programme. The vessel has secured a long term contract with a leading seismic company," said the Swire.
