The firm duration of the contract starting mid-April 2019 is four months with up to two months of options. The contract value, minus extension options, is approximately $12 million.

Jesper Kragh Andresen, CEO of Prosafe says: “Prosafe is extremely pleased to secure this contract after a competitive bidding process. We are very confident that Prosafe will once again demonstrate industry-leading operations in a safe and efficient manner using the Safe Caledonia, proven as one of the best performing accommodation vessels in the world.”

The Safe Caledonia was built in 1982 at the GVA/Kockums yard in Sweden to a Pacesetter design and completed a 20-year life extension in 2012/13.
It has a maximum of 454 beds, 9 offices, and 67 client workstations.

The vessel was refurbished in 2012/13, extending the structural life time of the Safe Caledonia with 20 years.

The accommodation unit is currently on a contract with BP, supporting operations at the Clair Ridge Phase 2 development in the UK North Sea. The UK oil major in August extended the flotel contract until the end of November 2018.
