Eidesvik on Tuesday said it had won a contract for the subsea construction vessel Viking Neptun with Ocean Installer for a period exceeding two months with further options to extend. The contract will start in Q3 2019. This contract is in addition to the one already announced in December 2018.

Offshore Energy Today in December 2018 reported that Ocean Installer would hire the 145 meters long Viking Neptun on a term contract, with Eidesvik saying the startup was scheduled for “early 2020 and 2021.”

Also worth noting, another Norwegian offshore vessel operator Havila Shipping, on Wednesday said it had won term work for one of its platform supply vessels.

Havila said that the oil company Total had extended the contract for PSV Havila Commander for one year.

“The contract is in direct continuation of the existing contract and will keep the vessel working for Total until mid April 2020,” Havila added.
