Offshore staff

ZIERIKZEE, the NetherlandsN-Sea has expanded its offshore vessel fleet through the long-term charter of Siem Offshore’s subsea construction vessel Siem Barracuda.

This is equipped for subsea IMR, survey and construction operations, with twin work ROVs deployed from a moonpool, a 250-ton AHC crane, and accommodation for 110 personnel.

Roddy James, COO of N-Sea, said: “This is a state-of-the-art subsea vessel, which increases our ability to operate within greater parameters of harsh weather. 

“Additional bed space, a large active heave compensation crane, and the option for simultaneous moonpool deployment of ROVs and air nitrox diving, all illustrate N-Sea’s capacity for safe, sound, and swift operability…this is further reinforced by the addition of a permanent air nitrox daughter craft.”
