Island Offshore reduces headcount as it lays up vessel

Island Offshore will lay off some of its workers, as it will lay up the ROV and survey vessel Island Spirit for the winter season.

The typical duties performed by Island Spirit are IMR work, survey work and ROV operations, but, according to Island Offshore, the activity in this segment is expected to decrease in the coming months.

Managing Director in Island Offshore Management AS, Håvard Ulstein said: “We are working on relocating some of the crew, but unfortunately, there will be some temporary layoffs. Our hope is that the vessel will be fully operative in the beginning of 2016 with the same crew on board.”

Ulstein did not specify how many people exactly would have to go.

With this, Island Offshore has got six vessels laid up: Three platform supply vessels (PSV), two light well intervention vessels (RLWI) and one survey vessel. The three latter vessels are laid up only for the winter months, the company added.

As the Marine Traffic data shows, the vessel is currently moored in Ulstevik.
