Diving support vessel Offshore Beaver turns to aquaculture

Offshore Beaver

Ship manager and project developer Workships Contractors has sold the four-point mooring diving support vessel (DSV), the Offshore Beaver, to Seisund AS in Norway. 

The company has managed the vessel since 2014, obtaining contracts in nearshore projects in the UK, the Netherlands, Germany, and Denmark doing diving, salvage, and ROV support.

Workships Contractors said that the vessel would now transfer from its normal role of diving support to working in the Norwegian aquaculture industry.

Edvard Bakke of Seisund said: “With regulatory changes coming into the farmed salmon industry, we were looking for a suitable vessel to allow us to respond to the changes and maintain our position in the industry.

“We contacted Arthur van Loon of Van Loon Maritime Services BV, to start sourcing a suitable vessel and within a few short weeks we have taken ownership and the vessel is repainted into our house colors. The vessel will be renamed ‘Seisund’ and will join the eight other vessels in our fleet.”
