Aberdeen-based subsea installation contractor Bibby Offshore has invested close to £30million in the past six months increasing its international fleet of subsea support vessels by 40%.
Most recently, the company signed a contract to charter “EDT Jane”, a new build remotely operated vehicle support vessel (ROVSV). The company now boasts a fleet of eight vessels and 15 Remote Operating Vehicles (ROV).
This dedicated ROVSV with full survey and inspection spread will be mobilised from April 2014 as part of a 180 day charter, with options to extend for an additional three years.
With the continued growth of Bibby Offshore’s sister company, Bibby Remote Intervention Limited (BRIL), a state of the art ROVSV was required to deliver contracted subsea commitments, as well as the increasing demand for the full suite of survey and inspection, repair and maintenance (IRM) that this class leading vessel can provide.
