Horizon Geobay

The Horizon Geobay, an 87m DP2 vessel, was added to our fleet in 2013.

She is permanently mobilised with a heave compensated geotechnical drill rig with downhole sampling and CPT system mounted over a central moon pool and a 200kN seabed CPT system allowing her to drill boreholes and perform deep push seabed CPTs for foundation design and site characterisation.

A fully equipped offshore soil testing laboratory is integrated onto the vessel allowing fast turnaround of critical tests.

She is permanently mobilised with hydrographic and analogue geophysical survey spreads
allowing combined site surveys in remote locations to be performed from a single vessel with one mobilisation.

The vessel can also be mobilised with shallow sampling geotechnical equipment including a vibrocorer and Roson CPT; a digital 2D high resolution geophysical spread and a ROV as required.

The Horizon Geobay is primarily dedicated to the North Sea and Atlantic region and is owned and managed directly by Horizon allowing flexibility of scheduling and crew change patterns to maximise operational efficiency.

The vessel is OVID and IMCA audited and approved.
