ULSTEIN, Norway -- Polarcus has ordered six Ulstein-design seismic ships. The Ulstein SX124-, Ulstein SX133-, and Ulstein SX134-type vessels will be built at Drydocks World Dubai.

The two new designs, Ulstein SX133 and Ulstein SX134, are the first vessels with the Ulstein X-BOW to receive DNV's ICE-1A class notation, allowing them to operate in arctic waters.

The Ulstein SX124 and Ulstein SX134 vessels will be fitted with a 3D seismic system and 12 streamer winches, while the two Ulstein SX133 multi-purpose seismic vessels will be equipped with six streamer winches for 3D/2D/source operation.

The package from the Ulstein Group includes deliveries of design and main equipment. Ulstein will also produce main switchboards as well as bridge and control room consoles. The vessels will be equipped with Ulstein IAS, Ulstein COM IP, Ulstein NAV, and Ulstein PMS.
