EGS Marine Fleet

To better serve our global clients, EGS decided in 2005 to establish its own vessel management company and expand its fleet of survey vessels. EGS Marine now provides crew and manages all six vessels in the EGS fleet from its logistics and services center based in Cebu, Phillipines. Our vessels can operate across the whole marine spectrum, and survey from full ocean depth to the water's edge. A full set of vessel specifications are available.

RV Geo Resolution

The RV Geo Resolution is one of the recent additions to the EGS fleet. Before her acquisition by EGS in 2014, the 68m long and 13m wide vessel was an US and later New Zealand Navy hydrographic survey vessel and as such is a comfortable an acoustically very quiet survey platform. During her conversion to a commercial survey vessel in Singapore, EGS have fitted the vessel with a dual frequency (24kHz/12kHz) Reson Seabat 7150-F full ocean depth multibeam system and a geophysical equipment suite capable to acquire high resolution analogue geophysical and in-situ geotechnical data to 2000m water depth.

RV Bold Explorer (Operational from February 2020)

The Bold Explorer is the latest addition to the EGS fleet. Before her acquisition by EGS in 2019, the 68m long and 13m wide vessel was an US Navy hydrographic survey vessel and as such is a comfortable an acoustically very quiet survey platform. During her conversion to a commercial survey vessel in Singapore, EGS have fitted the vessel with the latest Kongsberg EM124 full ocean depth multibeam system and a geophysical equipment suite capable to acquire high resolution analogue geophysical and in-situ geotechnical data to 2000m water depth.
