Noordhoek expands its ROV fleet with 5 new units

Noordhoek Offshore B.V. is proud to announce the order of 2 new Sub-Atlantic Mohican ROVs
and 3 new Seaeye Falcon ROVs. The decision to order new ROVs is another step within the
growth strategy of Noordhoek, which already has 2 new vessels under construction; a DPII
Saturation Diving Support Vessel for delivery Q4 2009 and a dedicated DPII ROV Survey Vessel for delivery Q1 2010. This order continues Noordhoek´s fleet rejuvenation programme and adds 5 units to Noordhoek’s ROV fleet, which operates mainly in the Inspection, Repair and Maintenance (IRM) market. The delivery of these new ROVs is scheduled for the second quarter of 2009. The addition of these 5 new ROVs will not only provide considerable operational flexibility but also allows us to respond to the increasing demand from the market.

“Noordhoek is known for its strong, innovative and successful position as an offshore subsea
contractor in the North Sea area. Market developments and customer requirements, as well as our current market position are strong drivers behind the decision to invest in the expansion of our ROV fleet with 5 new units and it will greatly enhance Noordhoek’s operational flexibility. These new ROVs are complementary to the existing fleet and will provide Noordhoek with market-leading assets to further develop our presence in our market and offer more possibilities to our customers.” explains Managing Director Leen Noordhoek.
