The extension is for the period from September 2020 to December 2020 in direct continuation of the current time charter party, Eidesvik informed on Thursday.

Further, MV Viking Prince has been awarded a time charter party for the period from primo September to ultimo December 2020.

The current time charter party for MV Viking Prince with Aker BP ended primo June 2020.

Eidesvik will trade MV Viking Prince in the spot market during the three-month summer season.

Both time charter parties have been concluded under the frame agreement with Aker BP.

To remind, Aker BP in March 2019 entered into a frame agreement with three compatriot vessel owners – Simon Møkster Shipping, Eidesvik Offshore, and Solstad Offshore – for the supply of platform supply vessels.

The duration of the frame agreements was initially for three years, with the option of two additional periods of two years each.

Later in March 2019, Aker BP awarded a one-year contract to the Viking Lady.

In March 2020, Aker BP awarded a six-month contract to the Viking Lady vessel.

The Viking Lady is an LNG-fueled platform supply vessel built in 2009 by Westcon Yard, Ølensvåg, Norway.

The 92 m platform supply vessel combines four Wärtsilä 32DF dual-fuel engines with advanced vessel automation and Wärtsilä’s Low Loss Concept, which minimizes electrical losses.
