The Ramform Titan launched a new class of seismic ship that is easily the most powerful and efficient in the world. Power, capacity and redundancy are the keys to maximimizing seismic data production. Three variable pitch propellers provide 1.8 Megawatts of power, more than sufficient to tow her enormous spread of dual-sensor 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.
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.
The design dovetails advanced maritime technology to the imaging capabilities of the GeoStreamer seismic acquisition technology. The 70m broad stern is fully exploited with 24 streamer reels: 16 reels aligned abreast and eight reels further forward. Increased work space and advanced equipment mean safer and even more robust operations.
