The Island Victory was delivered to its owner Island Offshore by Vard in February 2020.

The vessel owner said at the time that the Island Victory would be heading straight into operation after delivery. It was agreed that the vessel would first spend a couple of weeks in the spot market, before starting a series of awarded contracts, securing work for potentially throughout October this year.

In an update on Wednesday, Island Offshore said that the Island Victory had just finished mobilizing for its first campaign in the Barents Sea.

According to the company, 24,500 meters of chain, equivalent to 3,773 tonnes, was loaded on to the vessel as well as 16 anchors weighing 18 tonnes each.

The anchors and chain will be used for two anchoring locations in the southern Barents Sea, where each line consists of about 1,500 meters of chain and one anchor.
