'Olympic Bibby' IRM vessel christened in Norway

Kleven Shipyard last week, on Thursday April 9, hosted a naming ceremony the Olympic Bibby, Inspection Repair and Maintenance (IRM) light construction vessel.

Bibby Offshore, a provider of subsea installation services to the offshore oil and gas industry, signed a charter agreement with Olympic Shipping in March 2014 for the newly built Olympic Bibby.

The agreement for the subsea support vessel is for a three year period, with options to extend for an additional two years.

Howard Woodcock, Chief Executive of Bibby Offshore, said: “Norway is a very important marketplace for us, and we are dedicated to expanding our presence and existing services in line with regional industry demand. The Olympic Bibby is a cost efficient vessel with capabilities that will help us achieve these objectives by further aligning the business going forward during the current environment.”

Arne Lier, Managing Director of Bibby Offshore AS, said: “We aim to further grow our capacity and presence in Norway by providing a superior service for our clients.

“By making our NORSOK compliant vessels available to the Norwegian market, we are working to ensure we have a range of assets capable of operating in this important new area, and becoming a partner of choice in the region.”

Bjorn Kvalsund, Executive Vice President for Olympic Shipping said: “We have developed a strong relationship with Bibby Offshore over several years. The name of our latest vessel is a true reflection of this relationship and we look forward to further strengthening our ties now and in the future.”
