P&O Repasa, a new company formed last year by the acquisition of the majority of the shares in Spanish towage firm Repasa by P&O Maritime, has taken delivery of the first Damen Fast Crew Supplier 5009.
The original Repasa focused on towage operations, but in its new form it is looking to expand into fast intervention for the offshore industry in areas including the west coast of Africa.
In August this year, Repasa announced that it has been awarded a 7+ year contract by Marathon Oil to expand its offshore marine services at the Alba Field, Equatorial Guinea.
The vessel, named Red Eagle, will be used for providing services to Marathon Oil’s Alba oil and gas field, off Equatorial Guinea. The fast support vessel will be operated from Malabo on Bioko Island.
Damen-built Fast Crew Supplier 5009 is a 53-meter vessel that reaches a speed of 30 knots and can take up to 80 personnel, but the Red Eagle has been configured for 50.
