"BOA Galatea"

Second EM survey vessel

Electromagnetic Geoservices ASA (EMGS) in Trondheim has taken into service its second purpose-built EM survey vessel to enhance hydrocarbon exploration across the world.

The new vessel, the "BOA Galatea", was built by Bergen Group Fosen and is leased from the owner BOA Offshore on a long-term charter.
As previously communicated, EMGS's core vessel fleet will consist of the two purpose-built 3D EM vessels "BOA Thalassa" and "BOA Galatea". Each vessel has the capacity to carry 200 receivers and offers two high power source systems, making these the most productive and efficient vessels available in the industry.
The vessels' features include sheltered deck and work spaces, advanced on-board processing system, helicopter deck, hospital ward, conference facilities and modern workstations with broadband connection. Surveying efficiency and flexibility is increased by the vessels' high speed, large fuel volume, extensive storage capacity, efficient fuel consumption and extended weather window.
