Launched in 1996 the Ramform Challenger immediately set new standards for productivity, acquiring twice the data volumes of conventional vessels. She was the first vessel to acquire 2000 sq. km in one month and has continued to deliver successful surveys. This vessel introduced High Density 3D (HD3D®) technology as early as 2001. In 2009, she was upgraded to dual sensor GeoStreamer® technology. Her outstanding performance has given her a reputation for HSEQ and production efficiency.
