Celtic Explorer at sunset

Call for 2020 ship-time charter applications Now CLOSED

We announce a call for ship-time applications each summer where organisations can apply to charter the RV Celtic Explorer, the RV Celtic Voyager and the ROV Holland I for survey work the subsequent year.  Applications are submitted using the on-line  Survey Planning System and the  schedules  are then prepared and published at year-end.

The vessels' schedules can change during the year, therefore please contact  rv [at] marine [dot] ie (Subject: Shiptime%20Availability) (Research Vessel Operations)  to check if there's any availability or to be notified if any dates become available.  

If you are considering applying for ship-time, please read the Vessel Charter Guidelines first for guidance.

If you would like to be added to the mailing list for ship-time call notifications or have any other queries regarding the research vessels or the ROV Holland I, please contact rv [at] marine [dot] ie (Subject: RV%20Query) (Research Vessel Operations).
