DOF, an owner and operator of a fleet of offshore/subsea vessels, has informed that one of its AHTS vessels has started a contract with Petrobras in Brazil.
Skandi Paraty, owned by DOF’s Brazilian subsidiary Norskan Offshore, has now been delivered from the yard and went on-hire on a four-year contract with Petrobras yesterday night local time Brazil, DOF informed on Tuesday.
Norskan was awarded two four-year charter contracts by Petrobras in February 2014 for AHTS vessels Skandi Copacabana and Skandi Paraty.
Skandi Paraty is an anchor handling tug and supply vessel (AHTS) of a Vard AH11 design. The vessel is the last vessel in a series of three, all built at Vard Niteroi in Brazil. It was designed for field installation operations across a wide range of water depths and environmental conditions.
The other two vessels from the series of three are Skandi Urca and Skandi Angra.
Mons S. Aase, CEO, stated, “I am very pleased that Skandi Paraty is onhire, and this contract confirms our strategy and maintain our strong position in the Brazilian market.”
DOF Subsea also recently said that Petrobras extended the RSV contract for the vessel Geograph for 18 months.
