OSLO -- Electromagnetic Geoservices ASA (EMGS) has launched the world's first purpose-built EM survey vessel, the BOA Thalassa. The new vessel was built by Bergen Group Fosen and is leased from the owner BOA Offshore on a long-term charter.
TheBOA Thalassa carries 100 receivers and can double this figure. Surveying efficiency and flexibility is increased by the vessel's high speed, large fuel volume, extensive storage capacity, good fuel consumption, and extended weather window, the company says.
The vessel also features a fully integrated spare equipment set and a new advanced on-board processing system.
