Boa Offshore will take over their latest newbuilding ‘Boa Galatea’ this month. The new vessel is a sistership of ‘Boa Thalassa’, which started operation in December 2008.
‘When the Bergen Group’s Fosen shipyard delivers its new building number 80 to Boa Offshore, ‘Boa Galatea’ will be one of the most modern vessels entering the Norwegian offshore industry. The seismic research vessel will start operation for Electromagnetic Geoservices (EMGS), who has chartered the vessel in order to carry out extensive seabed logging operations for oil and gas exploration companies. Designed for operation under harshest environmental conditions, ‘Boa Galatea’ is like its sister vessel ‘Boa Thalassa’ compliant to DNV NAUT-OSV notation. This classification rule lists specific requirements for OSVs and includes unique features regarding bridge layout and navigation system, which have become a synonym for highest standard to ensure safe navigation.
