ULSTEINVIK, Norway – Island Offshore says it will lay-up the DP II ROV and survey vessel Island Spirit for the winter season.
Typical duties performed by Island Spirit are inspection, maintenance, and repair work; survey work; and ROV operations, Island Offshore said that activity in this segment is expected to decrease in the coming months.
“We are working on relocating some of the crew, but unfortunately there will be some temporary lay-offs. Our hope is that the vessel will be fully operative in the beginning of 2016 with the same crew on board,” says Managing Director in Island Offshore Management AS, Håvard Ulstein.
With this, Island Offshore currently has six vessels laid up: three platform supply vessels, two riserless light well intervention vessels, and one survey vessel. The three latter vessels are only laid up only for the winter months.
