DeepOcean is chartering the Stril Server from Stavanger-based shipowner Simon Møkster Shipping.
The vessel will provide subsea inspection, maintenance, and repair (IMR), light construction and recycling services toDeepOcean’s customers in the offshore renewables and oil and gas industries.
“We are experiencing increased demand for our specialist subsea services from the offshore industries, and this vessel charter will allow us to further expand our offering,” says Øyvind Mikaelsen, CEO of DeepOcean.
The charter contract will commence in the first quarter of 2023 and have a firm hire period until the end of 2024, with option to extend the contract.
Moreover, DeepOcean has the option to request the installation of a battery hybrid system on board the vessel in 2024.
“We have set a target to reduce our CO2emissions by 45 percent by 2030. Collaborating with shipowners such as Simon Møkster Shipping, who are willing to modernize their fleet to drive down operating expenditure and harmful emissions to air, is a key part of this strategy,”adds Øyvind Mikaelsen.
The Stril Server will be equipped with 2 x Kystdesign ROVs together with DeepOcean’s dedicated infrastructure, allowing for remote operations from the company’s Remote Operations Centre in Haugesund, Norway.
