The survey will be conducted by the semi-SWATH catamaran Roman Rebel, which will conduct 24-hr operations, and the Lady Kathleen catamaran, which will conduct 12-hr operations.

Activities will take up to one year, with plans to have everything completed by 3 June 2022.

The geophysical survey will use a multibeam echosounder, sub-bottom profilers, side-scan sonars, and magnetometers.

The side-scan sonars and magnetometers will be towed using dedicated winches at cable lengths dictated by the water depth, the Irish reported.

Green Rebel Marine introduced itself to the offshore wind industry last year when it acquired Crosshaven Boatyard in County Cork in order to service planned offshore wind projects in Ireland.

Then, the Irish startup also purchased two vessels to service the industry, one of which is Bibby Athena, now known as Roman Rebel.
