She was converted to seismic research vessel in 90s. Originally she was built as "Atlantik 488" type super trawler. More info about this type here

She was a seismic research vessel. One of a couple of these vessels sent for scrap as the oil price went down and exploration activity tanked.

Does anyone know what the purpose of this ship was? Looks like a converted "Atlantik"-Type Supertrawler. But what did she do as a research vessel (especially what was the purpose of the machinery on her sides?
