Kongsberg Maritime's wholly owned deck equipment specialist Kongsberg Evotec reports a strong start to the year with three separate new contracts for advanced Seismic Handling systems.
Two contracts, for customers located in China, are for delivery of Seismic Handling systems for a six streamer vessel and a two streamer vessel. Both vessels are currently under construction in China and Kongsberg Evotec will start equipment deliveries from October 2016.
Kongsberg Evotec also signed a contract with a Norwegian customer for a Seismic Handling system featuring a containerised gun system. The equipment is scheduled for delivery in Norway, July 2016.
All Kongsberg Evotec Seismic Handling systems are custom built for specific vessel and client needs, using an established portfolio of reliable, feature rich equipment that covers: Streamer handling system, Gun handling system, Wide tow system, Back-deck control system and additional seismic products.
Kongsberg Evotec provides services from design to total engineering, fabrication, installation, commissioning and start up, ensuring that all seismic vessel back deck equipment supports a vessel's ability to operate efficiently, allowing for faster, safer operation that impacts positively on the profitability of any survey project.
"While demonstrating the strength and capabilities of Kongsberg Evotec's technology for handling systems for seismic vessels, the contracts also show our strength in new markets and signal the E&P sector's willingness to invest in systems to improve operations, even during the current oil & gas climate," says Torkjell Ringstad, VP Handling Solutions, Kongsberg Maritime.
