Offshore staff

GORINCHEM, the Netherlands – A charter agreement between subsea contractor DeepOcean and Maersk Supply Service has triggered an order for a Damen Offshore Carrier DOC 8500 – the second order for this new ship design from Damen Shipyards Group.

The DOC 8500 will extend DeepOcean’s capabilities in the larger cable laying end of the market, representing a new focus on interconnector projects, in addition to oil and gas sector and renewables work. The specially equipped vessel will be delivered from the Damen Galati yard in Romania.

Owned and operated by Maersk Supply Service, the vessel will become the latest addition to Maersk’s offshore support vessel fleet.

DeepOcean UK Managing Director Tony Inglis commented, “This next-generation cable-lay vessel, in combination with our survey and trenching capabilities, will enable us to bundle our services for customers in the offshore power cable and umbilical markets.”
