Gardline have bucked the trend in the offshore industry by investing and commissioning a new DP2 geotechnical drill vessel. The vessel, named the MV Ocean Vantage has already successfully completed a number of projects.  

The Ocean Vantage has a proven 65 tonne capacity GL100 twin tower drill system. Many new features have been added making the vessel one of the most dynamic geotechnical drill vessels on the market today. 

The Ocean Vantage has already completed work in the challenging North Sea adjacent to an offshore gas installation and is planned to complete several other surveys in the European/Atlantic region before the end of this year.

Managing Director Mervyn Wooltorton says “This investment highlights Gardline’s long term commitment to serving the offshore hydrocarbon, renewables and civil engineering sectors with continued high quality geotechnical services in the coming years”.
