Glomar Offshore scoops vessel work off Gabon

Dutch offshore support vessel operator Glomar Offshore has been awarded a deal for one of its vessels for work offshore Gabon.

Glomar said on Monday that the standby vessel Glomar 4-Winds was hired by the company’s partner Rederij Groen B.V. for a seasonal term contract in Gabon.

The Glomar 4-Winds will perform seismic guard and chase duties for Rederij Groen’s clients for the next five months. According to the company, this is Glomar’s first deployment in Sub-Saharan Africa.

This is the second contract in under a week for Glomar. In both cases, Rederij Groen hired a vessel for work outside the North Sea market.

Namely, Glomar’s 2012-built standby vessel Glomar Linde was awarded a deal for 12 to 24 months outside Europe with Rederij Groen last week.

“Together with our current contract outside of Europe, this marks our second deployment outside our familiar field of action and offers us seasonal coverage on the usually subdued winter market in the North Sea,” the company said.

As for the vessel, the Glomar 4-Winds was built in 1986 and rebuilt in 2012. The offshore and support vessel is 45.7 meters long and 9 meters wide. The Panama-flagged vessel can hit a maximum speed of 10.6 knots and accommodate 19 people.
