Faroe Islands-based P/F Thor’s fourth seismic support vessel Thor Freyja has been delivered by Besiktas Shipyard.

The naming ceremony of the last unit of four SSVs was held in Turkey on September 29.

Thor Freyja, just like its sister vessels, Thor Magni, Thor Modi and Thor Frigg, is a Skipsteknisk-designed ST-204 SSV with main dimensions 64.4 x 14.5 x 7.2m (L x B x D).

The vessels, which can accommodate 60 persons, enabling also transportation of crew for the seismic mother vessels, will provide support for PGS’ fleet of seismic vessels during operation, covering offshore bunkering, crew change assistance, supply of provision and spare parts, as well as support during in-sea maintenance of the seismic equipment.

PGS has agreed to take the ships for ten-years each with options to extend the charter for an undisclosed period.
