Ramform Atlas

Ramform Atlas, launched 2014, represents an enormously stable platform, with the flexibility to encompass virtually any acquisition design. This vessel takes safety, efficiency and productivity to a new level. For clients that can mean completing an exploration program safely in one season, where other vessels might need two. The 70 meter-wide back deck houses the industry's largest seismic spread, and workboats to maintain it.

Power, capacity and redundancy are the keys to maximizing seismic data production. Ramform Atlas delivers all of them. Three variable pitch propellers provide 1.8 Megawatts of power, more than sufficient to tow her enormous spread of dual-sensor recording equipment. The propulsion system permits full operations with just two propellers, and just one of the fully-separated, dual engine rooms. Two stern-launched work boats permit streamer maintenance also in marginal weather. Maintenance can increasingly be carried out at sea without impairing operations.

The Titan class has 24 streamer reels, 16 abreast with a further 8 in a second row, and 22 tow points. The back deck layout is augmented by six independent source array handling booms. Together these enable faster deployment and recovery, with increased flexibility and safety, which make it possible to fully utilize the operational weather window. Steerable sources and streamers, combined with automated gear-handling systems increase flexibility and efficiency. 

This vessel is designed to take full advantage of our GeoStreamer® technology.
