iXblue Inaugurates New Survey Vessel
iXblue has baptised its new survey vessel Felix as the latest addition to its iXSurvey fleet.
The Felix is a 25-meter catamaran designed to conduct hydrographic, biological and oceanographic missions.
The vessel is developed and built by H2X, iXBlue’s shipyard in La Ciotat. Built in composite materials, its hull is lightweight and non-corrosive.
The company markets Felix as a complete hydrographic platform, incorporating many of iXblue’s equipment, and as being suitable for the high seas or coastal areas, over long periods.
It is presented as stronger, lighter and more energy efficient, with very little maintenance and a very low acoustic noise, ensuring high-quality imaging.
