DOF sheds anchor handler Skandi Stord

DOF Rederi, a subsidiary of Norwegian shipping company DOF, has sold and delivered its anchor handling tug and supply (AHTS) vessel Skandi Stord to an undisclosed foreign buyer.

DOF announced the sale of the vessel on Tuesday without revealing the client or financial terms of the contract.

This is the company’s second vessel sale in quick succession after it sold the 2009-built subsea equipment support vessel (SESV), the Skandi Santos, in September.

The Skandi Stord is a flexible DP-II AHTS. Vessel features include mud and cement capacities in addition to oil recovery capabilities. The vessel is equipped primarily to set anchors for drilling rigs, tow mobile rigs, and position offshore equipment.

It is of a KMAR 404 design built in 1999 with class II firefighting capabilities and has been in lay-up since June 2016.
