Ramform Titan, launched in 2013, is the most powerful class of seismic ship ever. It is fully integrated with GeoStreamer technology for optimal results and offers high equipment redundancy, with fast deployment and recovery of up to 24 steerable streamers plus steerable sources.
Power, tow-density, and redundancy are essential to maximizing high-quality seismic data production. Our Ramform Titan-class deliver all of them. Three variable pitch propellers provide 1.8 Megawatts of power, more than sufficient to tow her enormous spread of multisensor 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.
Ramform Titan has 24 streamer reels, 16 abreast with a further 8 in a second row. 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 is an ideal platform for ultra high-density 3D acquisition, and reliable, compatible 4D projects.
This vessel is designed to take full advantage of our GeoStreamer technology. In normal operating mode, Ramform Titan is equipped with 16 streamers, though she is capable of towing 24 streamers if required.
