Pharos Mobilizing Deepsea Worker for 2016/2017 Ops

Pharos Offshore is mobilizing the DP2 vessel ‘Deepsea Worker’ with a work class ROV, an observation class ROV and a subsea excavation spread, for 2016/2017 operations.

Aleron Subsea will be Pharos Offshore’s ROV partner during the period, providing the vehicle support package, whilst Pharos operates the equipment.

The company entered discussions with the vessel owners in early February for the vessel, which has become available after its 5-yearly inspection. The vessel will be mobilized in Bergen and re-birthed in the Port of Blyth alongside Pharos Offshore’s quayside storage facility, the company informed.

Phil Walker, CEO of Pharos Offshore, said: “Pharos Offshore has an excellent reputation within the offshore market as a marine contractor with specialist knowledge, kit and experience. We are looking forward to bringing forward our subsea solutions to the offshore market from the Deepsea Worker and we hope to develop from our commendable track record.”

The Deepsea Worker was renamed from Skandi Inspector, after its previous owner DOF Subsea sold the vessel in 2015.
