Finally, DOF secured a short-term contract in the Mediterranean for the Skandi Caledonia platform supplier which is set to start in March 2019.

DOF said that the contract awards would collectively provide around NOK 425 million ($49.4 million) in additional backlog to the DOF Group, of which 62% is in 2019.
