GC Rieber finds more work for ‘Polar Onyx’

Norwegian offshore shipowner GC Rieber Shipping has secured a time charter agreement for its Polar Onyx SURF vessel.

GC Rieber said on Monday that the charter would begin shortly and would see the vessel continue operating in West Africa.

The time charter is for four months but could go as far as six due to a two-month extension option that could follow the firm period.

Before this latest charter, the vessel worked with Marine Platforms Limited (MPL) for end client Chevron, also in West Africa. The charter with MPL was for a firm period of about one month including up to 5 weeks of additional work through extension options.

The SX121 designed offshore construction vessel Polar Onyx was delivered in March 2014 from Ulstein Verft. The vessel is designed to operate in the SURF/Construction/IRM markets, with high capacity for flexible pipe loads.
