The vessel will arrive in the North Sea in early 2014 and will be marketed for opportunities in the spot market before

“The Mermaid Endurer was built in Norway, specifically for these conditions, and we are confident that we can fulfill Bibby Offshore’s expectations,” said  Chalermchai Mahagitsiri, Chief Executive Officer.

This contract marks Mermaid’s successful re-entry into the North Sea market at a particularly exciting time over there. The contract covers all facets of the Mermaid group namely, Mermaid Offshore’s marine division, Subtech’s diving, inspection and IRM division, Subtech’s ROV department and Seascape’s survey division,” said  Paul Whiley, Executive Director of Mermaid’s subsea division.
