The company’s MPSV Energy Empress has been hired for six additional months. The vessel was originally chartered in August 2022, followed by a six-month extension in August 2023 for a mission in the Caribbean.

The latest extension, which is also the last option available to the undisclosed charterer, means firm employment for the vessel until October 24, 2024

The 2019-built MPSV Energy Empress is of an Ulstein PX121 H design and can accommodate 30 people. Even though the name of the contracting company has not been revealed, BP/Delta is listed as the current charterer on the GEOS website.

The latest assignment comes after the Norwegian operator announced its fleet expansion with four platform supply vessels (PSVs) and one safety and standby vessel (SSV) last August.

This year, the company secured new contracts for PSVs Energy Passion and Energy Paradise in the North Sea and got a contract extension for PSV Energy Swan with Repsol Norge.
