Miclyn Boosts Subsea Fleet
- Business & Finance
Miclyn Express Offshore (MEO) has added a new DP2 Subsea Operations Vessel ‘Windermere’ to its fleet.
Windermere is designed for wellhead servicing, inspection and construction diving, and remotely operated vehicle (ROV) support.
“This acquisition is a game-changing milestone in the evolution of our global business,” said Diederik de Boer, CEO of the Miclyn Group. “Our ongoing fleet expansion programme remains a strategic priority for us as we enhance our service offering to clients across expanding geographies. Windermere enables MEO to offer a wider range of value-added services, thus reinforcing our commitment to the needs of our clients across expanding geographies and demonstrating our consistent industry leadership position.”
Windermere boasts its own moonpool, a 15-man saturation diving system plus an air diving system. She also has an active heave-compensated 50 MT SWL knuckle-boom subsea crane to provide true operating capability down to 1,500 metres in water depth. The vessel accommodates up to 120 personnel with onboard facilities including a 700 square metre deck, plus an elevated helipad at the bow.
Effective immediately, Windermere will be chartered for a period of 5 years to a reputed subsea services provider in South East Asia.
