A ship power system integrator and solution provider, Wärtsilä, had signed a contract to design and supervise the construction of an oceanographic research vessel for the marine wing of the Geological Survey of India (GSI). Wärtsilä will be involved in selecting the onboard scientific instruments, and in arranging training for GSI scientists to ensure that the vessel's capabilities are fully utilized, beside to design and supervising the construction process. Moreover, this is not the first time Wärtsilä is designing for India, according to Arne Stenersen, Managing Director Wärtsilä Ship Design in Norway, the new vessel is the third of its kind, Sagar Nidhi and Sindhu Sadhana.

This vessel would be supported by good facilities for handling equipment, laboratories and workshops, ample space for living quarters and meetings, the correct positioning of transducers and good levels of comfort. The most shock out, it also supported by a high-speed LAN and internet connections will link the vessel's control rooms, laboratories and accommodation to the outside world. The vessel designers have to reproduce the working conditions enjoyed by scientists ashore. Moreover, this research vessel is supporting by a new set of rules that apply to the design, and focus on how the scientific tools perform and on the vessel's ability to adapt to what she will be expected to explore in the future.

She, research vessel, has to be capable of carrying out complicated operations such as handling ROVs (Remotely Operated Vehicles), supporting manned underwater submersibles and controlling autonomous drills that can drill up to 150 m below the seabed at depths of 1,000m - not to mention the collection of seismic data and simple operations such as water and soil sampling. The new vessel predicts will have accommodation for about 69 people. With an overall length of 95m, breadth of 1m, maximum draft of six meters and speed of 14 knots, it will have an endurance of 45 days. Completion of the project is scheduled for the first quarter of 2012.
