Offshore staff

HAMILTON, Bermuda – BP has contracted Floatel International to provide the accommodation and construction support vessel Floatel Victory for the Clair Ridge development, 66 km (41 mi) west of the Shetland Isles in the UK sector.

The charter will start in June 2015 for a firm period of 12 months, with an option for BP to extend the contract.

Floatel Victory is a newbuild DP 3 semisubmersible which should be delivered from Keppel FELS Shipyard in February 2014. Its design complies with the latest UK HSE rules and regulations. When not in DP mode, it can be stationed offshore using a 10-point chain mooring system.

The large payload and deck area, combined with dual cranes able to support the host facility, are all suited to support new construction, maintenance activities or decommissioning projects offshore, Floatel claims. The vessel will have accommodation for 500 crew members.
