For Siem Offshore AS Prolance Marine has installed floors, finished skirting boards and repaired subfloors for the research vessel JOIDES Resolution. All renovation work was done not in the Netherlands, but on the other side of the world in Zambales, the Philippines.
The project: JOIDES Resolution
To bring the project to a successful conclusion, the preliminary phase in this project was very important. Logistics, planning and communication played an crucial role. The specialists of Prolance Marine Flooring were one of the most important factors in the entire project. About 12 hours a day our service technicians worked on the ship. For a great result: the ship has undergone a complete metamorphosis and is ready to sail the sea again.
Applied floor solutions JOIDES Resolution
In 1985 to 2003 the JOIDES Resolution (JR) operated for the Ocean Drilling Program: an international partnership to investigate the composition and structure of the ocean floor. In 2006, the ship was extensively renovated, including modern scientific equipment and structural improvements. In the year 2009, the JOIDES Resolution returned as a ‘light drilling vessel’, or a light drill ship, and the ship was part of the IODP. The property of the JOIDES Resolution is owned by Overseas Drilling Ltd., part of Siem Offshore AS.
