Gard Horizon

The Gard Horizon, a 75m DP2 vessel, was added to Horizon’s fleet in early 2022.

She is permanently mobilised with a heave compensated geotechnical drill rig with downhole sampling and CPT system allowing her to drill boreholes for foundation design.

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

The Gard Horizon is also 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.

In addition, the vessel can 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 vessel is primarily dedicated to the Middle East and East African region and is owned and managed by Horizon allowing flexibility of scheduling and crew change patterns to maximise operational efficiency.

The vessel is OVID and IMCA audited and approved.
