Subsea inspection, maintenance and repair (IMR) provider, N-Sea, has agreed on a long-term charter of Siem Offshore’s subsea construction vessel (SCV), the Siem Barracuda.
The vessel is equipped specifically for subsea IMR, survey and construction operations, featuring twin WROVs, moonpool deployed, a 250T AHC crane and accommodation for 110 personnel.
Roddy James, Chief Operating Officer at N-Sea, said: “The Siem Barracuda has added another highly efficient dive support and survey vessel to the N-Sea fleet. Its technical specifications not only increase our capabilities across the subsea IRM field, but also build upon the safe, efficient ethos for which N-Sea is renowned.
“This is a state-of-the-art subsea vessel, which increases our ability to operate within greater parameters of harsh weather. Additional bed space, a large active heave compensation crane and the option for simultaneous moonpool deployment of ROVs and air nitrox diving, all illustrate N-Sea’s capacity for safe, sound and swift operability within oil and gas and renewables markets. This is further reinforced by the addition of a permanent air nitrox daughter craft.”
