Maersk Supply said via social media on Thursday that the subsea construction vessel (SCV) Maersk Forza began a two-year firm contract with DeepOcean on April 1.

According to the company, the contract will be for general subsea support services primarily in West Africa and the North Sea.

MSS added that this was the third contract that Maersk Forza secured with DeepOcean over the last year supporting subsea operations in both Europe and Africa.

The Maersk Forza was built in 2008 under the name of REM Forza. It was later sold by REM Offshore to Maersk Supply Services. The vessel has a 250-tonne crane which supports lifting operations for a range of tools, equipment, and subsea assets.

Offshore Energy Today reached out to Maersk Supply seeking additional information on the contract. A MSS spokesperson stated that the company could not share further details due to contract confidentiality with the client.

In related news, Danish shipping giant Maersk which has been contemplating options for its offshore support vessel subsidiary Maersk Supply Service – including a potential sale – for two years, has decided to retain full ownership of Maersk Supply Service.
