Canadian firm adds two vessels to offshore support fleet

In association with the U.S.-based Tidewater Marine, Canada’s Horizon Maritime has just added two supply vessels to its Canadian offshore support vessel fleet.

Based in St. John’s and Halifax, Horizon Maritime said that the Troms Sirius and Lundstrom Tide would add more capacity and capability to the offshore industry in Canada.

The imported vessels are Norwegian-built and designed to operate in harsh environments.

The two vessels will build on the previously established relationship between Tidewater Marine and Horizon Maritime, providing local seafarers with additional opportunities to operate these offshore vessels.

Previously, Tidewater Marine and Horizon Maritime worked together to support Shell Canada’s Shelburne Basin Deep-Water Exploration Project offshore Nova Scotia, during which Horizon Maritime personnel operated Tidewater Marine vessels, Breaux Tide and Jones Tide, over a roughly 18 month time-frame.

Both the 2012-built Troms Sirius and the 2013-built Lundstrom Tide are Canadian registered vessels and are crewed with Atlantic Canadians.

In addition, both vessels have a diesel-electric propulsion technology allowing for minimized fuel consumption and carry “Green Passports” and have Clean Design class notations.
