SURVEY vessel, Ocean Endeavour, owned by Great Yarmouth-based company Gardline, has sailed to its home port for the very first time.
The large multi-role survey vessel arrived in Lowestoft recently following a 7,000 mile journey from the port of Durban, South Africa.
Peviously based in the Asian Pacific for almost three years, she carried out a number of successful seismic exploration surveys around the North West Coast of Australia.
An ideal platform for geophysical and geotechnical surveys, the OE also performed a large project in the China Sea before eventually ending her world wide tour of duty off Mozambique, East Africa.
She will be based in Lowestoft for a short period of maintenance before setting sail again, this time for a series of projects that include pipeline surveys and geotechnical site investigations in the North Sea.
The work carried out on behalf of Gardline's oil and gas clients is anticipated to take the ship through the summer months and beyond.
