Ship history

Polarcus signed a five year Bareboat Charter Party Agreement with Russian OAO Sovcomflot (SCF) for ‘Vyacheslav Tikhonov’, and the vessel was officially named ‘Vyacheslav Tikhonov’ in a naming ceremony in Sochi, Russia on 16 September 2011.
The Prime Minister of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Putin, has assumed the role of Guardian to the seismic vessel. The vessel is named after a famous Soviet/Russian actor (1928-2009), who received numerous state awards.
