PLSV Skandi Vitoria lands Petrobras gig

Brazilian oil company Petrobras has awarded the Brazilian-built pipe-lay support vessel (PLSV), Skandi Vitória, a contract of 532 days.

The vessel is owned through a joint venture between the Norwegian shipping company DOF and the French oilfield services provider Technip. DOF said on Monday that the contract with Petrobras will start in January.

Skandi Vitória, of a STX OSCV 06 design, is the first pipe-lay vessel built in Brazil, in 2010. It is equipped with vertical and horizontal pipe-lay systems, a 250 mt crane, and two ROVs.

The vessel is capable of operating in water depths up to 3,000 meters and it is suited for pipe laying, subsea construction, and installation and maintenance work.

DOF CEO, Mons Aase, stated that this contract award confirms the DOF Group’s position in the South America region.
