PLSV Skandi Buzios starts 8-year charter with Petrobras

TechnipFMC and DOF Subsea have informed that the Skandi Búzios, a pipelay support vessel (PLSV), started its eight-year charter contract with Petrobras last week.  

The vessel, owned by the joint venture formed between TechnipFMC (50%) and DOF (50%), started the contract on April 13.

Skandi Búzios is the sistership of the Skandi Açu, which started its charter contract on August 13, 2016.

According to a joint press release between the two companies, these two vessels have the most important flexible pipelay tension capacity in the world (650 tons), enabling the installation of large diameter flexible pipes in the ultra-deepwater Brazilian pre-salt area.

Under the joint venture agreement, TechnipFMC is responsible for the engineering and management of the flexible pipelay, while Norskan S.A., a DOF ASA subsidiary, is responsible for the marine operations.

Hallvard Hasselknippe, TechnipFMC’s President of Subsea Projects, stated: “We are confident that these new state-of-the-art PLSVs, together with the expertise of our people will be key for Petrobras to successfully achieve its projects offshore Brazil.”

Mons S. Aase, DOF Subsea’s Chief Executive Officer, added: “This milestone project is the result of our long-term focus on the Brazilian market. We are proud of this significant addition to our Brazilian fleet.”
