Overview
Nautical Geo is a DP2 Multi-Purpose Support Vessel fitted with cutting-edge geotechnical and geophysical survey equipment to carry out site investigation and survey operations worldwide.

Nautical Geo is equipped hydrographic (side scan sonars), geophysical (sub-bottom profiles), geotechnical equipment (seabed CPT, vibrocorers, piston corers, and gravity corers) and oceanographic/metocean instrumentation (e.g. sound velocity profilers, Niskin water sampler, and plankton nets) to carry out complex marine and offshore operations.
