DOF Subsea, a provider of integrated subsea solutions, has chartered a new multi-purpose vessel to assist in North Sea operations.
The company has entered into a long-term charter agreement with Reach Subsea for the newbuild construction support vessel (CSV) Normand Reach. DOF Subsea has signed a two-year contract with Reach Subsea with two one-year extension options.
The Normand Reach is due to be delivered before the end of May 2014 and will replace DOF Subsea’s existing Skandi Bergen vessel for high-end construction projects. The vessel is 121 m long and equipped with a 250 t AHC crane and two work-class ROVs.
Giovanni Corbetta, Managing Director of DOF Subsea UK, said: “We are thrilled to have chartered the Normand Reach, which will prove invaluable within our existing fleet of state-of-the-art vessels. It will be instrumental in responding to our growing number of projects in the North Sea and Atlantic region.”
