MV Empire Persia is a Dynamic Positioning Class II ROV Support DP2, AB+100 A1(ice class)

originally built as a factory trawler, but with substantial rebuild in 1994, providing significant resources and facilities for the support of modern marine science.

 

The ship is fully equipped to maintain and support extended deep-sea voyages. Handling equipment is installed for the operation of ROVs, deep and shallow water Search System, and the deployment of sub sea packages.

 

On the ship in 2021, there were over hull of all engines and generators (9 in total), replacement of metal on the deck and other repairs. The ship is in perfect condition and ready to go straight away. At the moment, all certificates have expired and the vessel is laid up with a team of mechanics and is maintained in good condition.

Optionally, it is possible to leave one or two ROVs on the ship.
