The vessel is on a long-term charter agreement with DeepOcean Shipping AS. The work scope involves subsea tree and jumper installation in up to 2,000 m (6,562 ft) water depth. Maersk Supply Service will take over this charter agreement including the option for extensions.
Maersk Supply Service CEO Jørn Madsen said: “This acquisition of a quality asset is fully in line with our strategic ambition of growing our subsea fleet and at the same time adds contract coverage during a period of market downturn. The work scope is well related to our area of expertise, and we look forward to working with our long-term customer, DeepOcean, on this operation.”
The vessel, built in 2008 by Kleven Verft A/S, features three work-class ROVs, a high-load capacity deck, and a Hydramarine main crane with a lifting capacity of 250 metric tons and a wire of 2,450 m (8,038 ft). The vessel accommodates up to 120 people and has a low fuel consumption due to its diesel electric power plant.
