Prosafe, the owner and operator of semi-submersible accommodation vessels, took delivery of Safe Zephyrus on Wednesday, January 27, 2016.
The Safe Zephyrus was built by Sembcorp Marine’s Jurong Shipyard.
The final delivery installment of the Safe Zephyrus has been reduced by $30 million. This represents a seller’s credit from Jurong Shipyard, to be repaid in a single payment on or before June 15, 2017.
The accommodation rig is scheduled to start its time charter with Det norske in June 2016 until December 2016 on Ivar Aasen field offshore Norway. However, the provider of rigs can nominate either Safe Zephyrus or its sister rig Safe Boreas for this contract.
Built based on the GVA 3000E design, the Safe Zephyrus will be capable of operating gangway connected in deep water and in harsh environments alongside fixed platforms, floating platforms and floating production offloading vessels.
The 450-person capacity Dynamic Positioning class 3 (DP3) accommodation semi-submersible rig features a 12-point mooring system suitable for harsh-environment operations on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.
