    Vessel & ROV News // March 25, 2010

    Geo Caspian is Fugro's third new 'C' class vessel.

    On 19 March 2010, Fugro formally took delivery of the newbuild seismic survey vessel Geo Caspian, which is on a long term charter from Volstad Maritime.

    The vessel was outfitted at Fosen Yards in Norway and is one of the largest and most advanced seismic vessels ever built. Caspian is the third 'C' class vessel in a series of four delivered to Fugro since 2007.

    Geo Caspian is designed to work worldwide in the most challenging offshore areas, and is capable of towing 16 seismic streamers.

    "The 'C' class design allow deployment of the largest possible spread of seismic streamers, which are considered essential for efficiency when performing geophysical exploration on large prospects in the 'high end'' market segment," said Fugro.

    The next 'C' class vessel, Geo Coral, will be delivered to Fugro in August 2010.
