There are several reasons why the PGS fleet is the safest, most reliable and most efficient in the industry. One of the main ones is the combination of the Ramform design and GeoStreamer®. Another key factor is our culture. From the boardroom to the backdeck we focus on mitigating risk and delivering quality.
Our fleet is split into active vessels and flexible capacity. The active fleet is the youngest in the seismic industry and consists of our newest ultra-high capacity Ramforms both Titan-class and S-class, as well as modern, efficient conventional hulled ships on charter. The flexible capacity category comprises slightly older Ramform hulled vessels, four of which are cold stacked, though Ramform Vanguard is still in operation. The stacked vessels can quickly be brought back into service when market conditions improve.
The Ramform design has proved over 20 years to offer significant advantages in efficiency, productivity and safety. Each new generation of design expands on those benefits and the Titans are in a class of their own.
GeoStreamer makes a significant difference. All our vessels are equipped with dual-sensor, broadband GeoStreamer technology enabling efficient deep-towed operations, fully exploiting the available weather window and producing better data quality in all conditions and locations.
A fourth Titan-class, the Ramform Hyperion, is due in 2017.
