Dutch offshore support vessel operator Glomar Offshore has signed a contract extension for one of its emergency response and rescue vessels.

Glomar said on Monday that the company received a two-year extension for the charter of the Glomar Patriot EERV

According to the company, the vessel will operate on the UK Continental Shelf.

The Glomar Patriot was built in 1975 by Welglegen Amels & Zoon in the Netherlands, originally named Karmoy Boy. It was rebuilt for the first time in 1991 and named the Britannia Endeavour.

The vessel became a part of Viking’s fleet in 2008 and was sold to Glomar in 2013. In the same year, it was rebuilt for the second time in Gdynia, Poland, and converted to a Class B O&G UK ERRV and renamed the Glomar Patriot.

The vessel is 59 meters long and 12 meters wide, has a gross tonnage of 1,177 tonnes and can hold up to 75 survivors.

Mark van der Star, Chief Commercial Officer of Glomar, said: “This contract marks a milestone where half of our current ERRV tonnage is committed on long-term charters for 2017 and 2018 and shows our clients’ continuous interest and trust in our services.”

Offshore Energy Today has tried to obtain more information from Glomar regarding the contract extension. However, a spokesperson for Glomar said that the company couldn’t provide any more details on the deal due to a confidentiality agreement with the client.
