Russia: Marine fleet of Russia - Scientific and research vessel "Vyacheslav Tikhonov"
Scientific and research vessel "Vyacheslav Tikhonov" is destined for carrying out geological exploration on the continental shelf, particularly in difficult climatic conditions of Arctic and sub-Arctic seas. The appearance of this modern ship in the Russian fleet will expand the range of services provided to oil and gas companies operating on the Russian continental shelf; its appearance provides access to the most modern technologies of data collection and seismic fleet exploitation, with particular focus on the Arctic conditions; it also helps to reduce the technological inferiority of the Russian contractors before leading foreign seismic companies.
