Norwegian subsea company DOF Subsea has informed that its newbuild vessel Skandi Vinland has started its contract with Husky Energy in Canada.
In September 2015, DOF Subsea was awarded a contract with Husky Energy for the construction of a new light intervention vessel committed to a ten-year IMR project off the East Coast of Canada.
The subsea company stated on Monday that the vessel, Skandi Vinland, which was designed and built in Norway, has started the contract in Canada as scheduled.
Mons S. Aase, the CEO of DOF Subsea, commented: “This is a cornerstone contract for the group with high strategic importance through strengthened presence in the North America subsea region.”
The newbuild is owned by DOF fully-owned subsidiary, Canadian Subsea Shipping Company. DOF took full control of the Canadian company in April.
