Overview
The Dina Polaris is a 2017 build, DP2 geotechnical vessel, specially designed for offshore installation services in harsh weather conditions. The Dina Polaris is an ice class vessel constructed according to Baltic rules allowing her to operate in cold climate environments in ice thickness up to 0.8m. Certificated Clean Design, she was designed and built to minimise her working footprint on the environment. Geoquip Marine's twin derrick, fully heave-compensated GMTR120 drilling rig has been installed over the 7.2m² midship moonpool. At 99m length and 21m beam, she is one of the largest geotechnical vessels currently available in the industry, creating an extremely stable platform, allowing seabed cone penetration testing (CPT) equipment and remotely operated vehicles (ROV) to be mobilised alongside the GMTR120 drilling rig.

Equipment & Assets
Drilling & Sampling
Geoquip Marine designed, built and commissioned the Twin Ram Drilling Rig (GMTR120) in 2013, which complements the company’s existing fleet of geotechnical drilling rigs and enabled the expansion into deep water markets. The GMTR120 geotechnical drilling rig is compatible with a wide range of wireline, downhole sampling, testing and logging equipment. ... MoreThis includes piezocone penetration testing (CPTU/PCPT), push/piston and percussion sampling, rotary coring, and P-S suspension logging tools. All can be run interchangeably without recovering the drill string. The GMTR120 is also capable of running Logging While Drilling Bottom Hole Assemblies to provide detailed geophysical, geomechanical, petrophysical and geological borehole data.

The GMTR120 is suitable for drilling, coring, sampling and testing in all soil conditions in water depths plus borehole depth of up to 2,500m with an option to extend to 3,000m.

Geoquip Marine's GMTR series rigs are a series of modular ram hoist type rigs designed to be easily mobilised onto vessels of opportunity. The parts are designed for shipping in standard open top containers.

The rig has an automatic pipe handling system, ram hoist system with twin wire suspension for safe and controlled handling of in-hole tools and 6m passive stroke compensation (improved sample recovery and quality).

The seabed frame can clamp onto the drill string and enable in situ testing with the downhole CPT. Furthermore, the GMTR120 is capable of lowering and hoisting the GMCPT200 seabed CPT system, which enables rapid execution of CPT surveys, especially for offshore wind farm projects.
Cone Penetration Testing
Geoquip Marine have developed a 200kN Seabed Cone Penetration Testing System (GMC201) capable of operating in water depths up to 800m (which can be extended to 2,000m on demand), providing a push capacity of 200kN (20t). This enables the recovery of in situ soil engineering data to a depth of 40m or more below the seabed (depending on soil conditions).... More

The GMC201 Seabed CPT unit has two electrical motors which power the chain drive system (CDS) and the piezoelectric cone (PCPT) into the soil.

Key Features

200kN (20t) thrust capacity

Depth rating to 800m (2,000m optional)

Electrically-driven chain drive system (CDS)

Penetration to +40m below seabed (depending on soil conditions)

This enables the recovery of in situ soil engineering data to a depth of 40m or more below the seabed (depending on soil conditions).... More

The GMC200 unit has a subsea hydraulic power unit (HPU) which is mounted on the subsea frame and provides power to the chain drive system (CDS) to push/pull the CPT string and clamping force onto the CPT string by means of hydraulic cylinders.
