Eidesvik secures more work for Viking Lady vessel

Offshore vessel operator Eidesvik Offshore has been awarded a contract for its Viking Lady platform supply vessel.

Eidesvik said on Wednesday that Aker BP had awarded the contract to the Viking Lady vessel under the framework agreement between the parties.

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.

The vessel owner said on Wednesday that the firm period of the new contract is six months, starting in direct continuation of the existing contract.

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 innovative Low Loss Concept, which minimizes electrical losses.
