The latest addition to Athena's fleet of vessels, the 77' Thunderforce is an ideal vessel for offshore vibracore collection. Using a heavy duty pnuematic vibracore, this vessel can collect 20 foot vibracores in water depths up to 80 feet. Thunderforce can also be outfitted to deploy intstruments and equipment for a wide assortment of projects.
Versatile, Adaptable, Easily Deployed
RV Artemis was built with versatility in mind. She can be deployed in most water bodies and has been used to support sediment sampling projects for harbor deepenings and beach nourishment projects. Artemis has a shallow draft and can operate in water depths up to 60 feet in nearshore and offshore settings
RV Recovery was built with environmental projects in mind. This 32-foot pontoon has ample deck space for sample containers and coolers necessary to make sure sediments are collected and preserved properly for analytical testing.
Good Vibrations was salvaged from a wrecked pontoon boat over 20 years ago and has been instrumental in our ability to collect vibracore samples in areas not easily accessible to other boats. She can be easily transported anywhere and can be shipped to the Caribbean.
Thrives in Remote Areas
Frankenstein was envisioned as a way to carry a sampling platform to remote areas to collect cores. Frankenstein can be assembled on shore in areas where no infrastructre is available to launch larger vessels.
