DOF Subsea lands work for three vessels

DOF Subsea has been awarded contracts for three of its vessels in the Asia Pacific and Atlantic regions.

The new projects bring vessel days for Skandi Singapore, Skandi Skansen and Geosund, the company announced in an Oslo Stock Exchange filing on Friday.

In the Asia Pacific region, DOF Subsea has been awarded a 40-day diving project utilizing the 2011-built Skandi Singapore. This together with a number of expected campaigns under existing contracts could see the vessel busy for most of the year, the company noted. The Skandi Singapore is a purpose built dive support vessel.

Further, contracts for the 2011-built Skandi Skansen have been secured to complete an inspection campaign in UKCS and an anchor handling scope in the Norwegian Sea. According to the company, this ensures that the vessel is utilized through most of 3Q 2017. The Skandi Skansen is a new generation high powered anchor handling vessel designed for field installation operations.

Finally, Geosund will take part in a series of campaigns for an unnamed “major operator” undertaking trenching and survey support activities in the Norwegian Sea region, securing 50 days’ utilization until mid-August 2017.

The Geosund is a modern, DP2 multipurpose vessel designed for safe and efficient offshore operations. It was built in 2001 and converted in 2006.
