Kommander Stuart

Kommandor Stuart


A multi-disciplinary IMCA and OVID approved DP1 survey vessel with a proven track record in the North Sea and Arctic, Kommandor Stuart was added to Horizon’s fleet to meet growing demand for Geophysical Survey services.

Rebuilt in 2006, the vessel has a large working deck and excellent features including a comprehensive survey laboratory with offshore data processing facilities.

Permanently fitted with a high resolution 500m range Multibeam Echosounder, a low frequency 3000m range Multibeam Echosounder, a hull mounted sub-bottom profiler as well as side scan sonars and magnetometers, this vessel is ideally suited for site surveys and cable or pipeline route surveys.

In addition to these bathymetric and geophysical survey spreads, this vessel can also be mobilised with shallow sampling geotechnical equipment including vibrocorer, dropcorer or seabed CPT.

The vessel also benefits from having in built compressors for digital 2D high resolution geophysical surveys and an ROV can be quickly mobilised as required.

The Kommandor Stuart is primarily dedicated to the North Sea and West Africa region.
