Bibby Offshore’s Houston-based division, Bibby Subsea has signed a three year contract with Bordelon Marine to charter a new vessel.
The Brandon Bordelon is an ultra-light intervention vessel (ULIV) and will commence a three year charter in August 2015 primarily operating in the Gulf of Mexico. The addition of the Brandon Bordelon to Bibby Offshore’s existing international fleet of specialised vessels enhances the capability throughout the Americas region.
The purpose built, high specification Brandon Bordelon vessel provides a versatile and cost effective approach to a variety of operations, including IMR operations (inspection, maintenance and repair), light construction, survey and inspection work.
Since its inception, Bibby Subsea has experienced significant client demand for its service offering, which continues to increase across North America. In November 2014, the Company also announced investment in a custom-built facility. Located in the Houston Energy Corridor, it is set to strengthen the Company’s presence and enhance its on-the-ground support for clients in the region.
