The SEAS VC-700 is the newest and largest of SEAS single core vibracoring systems, catering for water depths to 1000m and core samples up to 6.5m in length.
The SEAS VC-700 follows the same light weight highly efficient system design as the smaller VC-450, but incorporates a 4.4kW drive head to provide greater penetration in tough coring conditions. A central access bore has been included through the centre of the drive head to allow utilization of piston coring techniques to aide recovery if desired.
For Deeper water operation, SEAS can provide telemetry and sensors to monitor coring operations and provide real-time feedback on coring progress. The system is ideally suited to operating with SEAS Launch and Recovery System (LARS), which facilitates faster and safer deployment in a wider range of sea conditions than can be achieved with conventional deck crane configurations.
