As of December 2017, still MV Atlantic Explorer, owned by Atlantic Marine and Aviation. In the 4mē moon pool (through No. 2 hold) deploys a ROGE - remotely operated grab excavator - on a contract to remove boulders from a wind farm site prior to Jack Ups arriving in Feb to install mono piles for the WTG's. There is now just one dining hall for all crew, (used to be 3), the sick bay is now a single bed cabin, and there are no twin bunked cabins. The fwd small arms store aft of the fore-peak is now the survey/ROV control room. The ROGE can have a 4km winch. She sailed Great Yarmouth 29th November, and will be based out of Grimsby until end of project in early 2018. The system works very well.
