Turkey issued a new navigational telex or Navtex late Sunday for the area where its Oruc Reis seismic vessel will conduct research activities until Oct. 22, APA reports citing Anadolu Agency.
According to the announcement, the vessel’s mission will last from Oct. 12 to Oct. 22.
A Navtex is a maritime communications system that allows ships to inform other vessels about their presence in an area as well as other information.
The Oruc Reis will carry out seismic studies in the Eastern Mediterranean together with two other vessels, the Ataman and Cengiz Han.
The research ship is capable of conducting all kinds of geological, geophysical, hydrographic and oceanographic surveys, especially of the continental shelf and natural resource searches.
