The outer look of the new vessel has an innovative design to its bow, called an inverted bow: the stem is developed opposite to conventional vessels. The control equipment of the seismic vessel contains state-of-the-art equipment, and the vessel has advanced dynamic positioning equipment. The diesel/electric propelling plant has been specially designed to make the fast-response compatible with smooth movements of the vessel. It has six main generator sets of 1,710kW each consisting of a 1000rpm, 1,800kW diesel engine. WG AMUNDSEN has a heliport and accommodation space for 69 people. The vessel was built in compliance with the regulations and under special monitoring by DNV, in order to achieve level + 1A1 SF, EO, DYNPOS-AUTR, CLEAN DESING, COMF-V839, ICE-C, NAUT-AW, and HELDK.
