Dutch company GloMar Shipmanagement has acquired the Fugro Commander, a dynamically positioned multipurpose
vessel, from Fugro.

Providing rationale for the move, the company said that growth of the GloMar Subsea division and the ability to perform Diving and ROV operations with the vessel, enticed the company to purchase it.

The vessel, to be renamed Glomar Vantage, will be converted into a Diving Support Vessel with an on board Seaeye Tiger ROV and two diving LARS systems.

GloMar Shipmanagement B.V. CCO Mark van der Star said: “The Glomar Vantage is a good fit in our fleet to expand our Subsea Diving and ROV services all over the world. We are in discussion with Fugro to mutually offer the vessel back to the market as Geotechnical vessel. Furthermore, we will actively promote her in the renewable and Oil & Gas industry.”

The Glomar Vantage is equipped with Dynamic Positioning (DPI) which was refurbished in 2012. Furthermore it has a 4-point mooring system. The vessel’s dimensions are 57 x 12 m, with a summer draught of 3.5 m which makes it capable for shallow water operations. S
