Prosafe finds new job for Safe Concordia unit

Offshore accommodation rigs provider Prosafe has won a contract for one of its units for operations offshore Trinidad and Tobago.

Prosafe said in a statement on Tuesday it has signed a contract to provide accommodation and construction support using the Safe Concordia in Trinidad and Tobago.

The contract is scheduled to start in the second quarter of 2021.

Prosafe has not revealed the name of the client nor the value of the contract.

Safe Concordia is a DP2 semi-submersible ASV with 461 beds for worldwide operations, excluding Norway.

The vessel was constructed at Keppel FELS shipyard in Singapore and delivered in March 2005. An upgrade was completed in July 2015.

Safe Concordia’s flexible design allows for up to 1300m2 of lay down and deck area.

During 2011, the Safe Concordia operated for Petrobras in Brazil’s Campos Basin and claimed an industry milestone when it was the first dynamically positioned ASV ever to operate gangway connected to a turret moored FPSO, according to Prosafe.

The accommodation rig also operated for Equinor in Brazil on the Peregrino project. The unit provided gangway connected operations supporting maintenance and safety services at the Peregrino FPSO in the Campos Basin offshore Brazil.

The contract had a duration of 120 days, starting mid-January 2020 with up to 60 days of extension options.
