Glomar said on Thursday it had bought the 2008-built Bourbon Arethuse and the 2009-built Bourbon Amilcar vessels, which are to be renamed Glomar Worker and Glomar Supporter, respectively.

Glomar said that, after modifications and upgrades in its yard in Gdynia, Poland (Globaltic Marine), the vessels will be dedicated to serving the oil and gas and renewables clients in the North Sea and Baltic on subsea and survey projects.

In addition, Glomar reported that upgrades on its recently acquired Minkar, Situla and Shaula (ex Halul 10, 11 and 12, all 2002 built) are proceeding and the vessels are expected to be ready to trade by 3Q 2019.

The vessels are to be certified as NOGEPA standby units, serving Glomar’s Dutch oil & gas clients.

Glomar said: “We would like to thank both previous owners, msrs Bourbon Offshore and Halul Offshore Services, as well as our brokers, Grieg Shipbrokers, for facilitating both transactions successfully.”
