The Storm eVibe

Zero-carbon Seismic acquistion

Minizing environment impact by using the
eVibe and enabling a zero-emission service

Battery powered

Highly skilled personell ready to take on any challenge.

Safe and Robust

Our technologies allow us to work according the the highest HSE/ESG standards.

High quality Signals

Ultra Low THD <5% and
high repeatability


The Storm is a 10.000N electric seismic source for zero carbon seismic acquisition up to depths of 4000mtrs. The electric seismic source allows for full force to be applied from 3.6Hz and high forces can be achieved from 2Hz onwards. Moreover, the Storm eVibe is powered by batteries and can be connected to electric carriers for zero-carbon seismic acquistion.

FAQ about the eVibe

Most frequent questions and answers

Yes, all our sources are battery powered. Still, all sources can be powered by generator or grid power.

The eVibes use direct drive motors. Therefore, a “frictionless” movement is created to generate acoustic signals. In other words, no energy is lost when creating the acoustic signals. 

A hydraulic valve/piston is designed around friction since its pumping oil from one chamber of the piston to the other under high pressures. This created viscous losses, wear and tear and is temperature dependent. Therefore, a lot of energy is wasted and high levels of harmonic distorion are created. This needs to be compensated with a lot of force. 

The eVibes use direct drive motors. Therefore, a “frictionless” movement is created to generate acoustic signals. As a result, the internal harmonic distortion is very low ca. 3%.

We can use locally available carriers. Generally, we use (electric) ATV’s/mules for the Ligthning eVibe. And small (electric) telehandlers/zoomboom for the Synchro and Storm eVibe
