GEO RESOLUTION (IMO: 8835243, MMSI 538005923)

The vessel GEO RESOLUTION (IMO: 8835243, MMSI 538005923) is a Research Vessel built in 1989 (31 years old) and currently sailing under the flag of Marshall Islands.

The RV Geo Resolution is the latest addition to the EGS fleet. Before her acquisition by EGS in 2014, the 68m long and 13m wide vessel was an US and later New Zealand Navy hydrographic survey vessel and as such is a comfortable an acoustically very quiet survey platform.

During her conversion to a commercial survey vessel in Singapore, EGS have fitted the vessel with a dual frequency (24kHz/12kHz) Reson Seabat 7150-F full ocean depth multibeam system and a geophysical equipment suite capable to acquire high resolution analogue geophysical and in-situ geotechnical data to 2000m water depth.

The vessel was handed over to EGS on 10 October 2014 and left Devonport Naval Base the same day for her voyage to Singapore, where she arrived at the Sembawang shipyard on 7 November.

According to EGS’s CEO Chris Welsh, the RV Geo Resolution is a vessel which was purpose-built as an acoustically very quiet survey platform, ideally suited in every way for the survey work the company performs. She had been extremely well maintained by the previous Navy owners.
