N-Sea – the Inspection, Maintenance and Repair (IMR) specialist – has confirmed the extension of its charter agreement with Siem Offshore, concerning its offshore subsea construction vessel, Siem N-Sea, previously Siem Stork.
The agreement has a duration of up to 6 years, having begun on January 1, 2015.
The Siem N-Sea is a dive, multi-support and construction vessel, designed to meet the needs of the offshore subsea industry. The company says it is one amongst its fleet of six dive support and specialist intervention vessels, designed to deliver a range of subsea services for offshore assets, platforms, FPSOs and renewables operations, with minimal impact made upon production.
According to N-Sea, the ship is equipped with exceptionally efficient azimuth thrusters and a DPII dynamic positioning system for safe and economic operations on a world wide scale. Furthermore, featuring N-Sea’s ground-breaking TUP Diving System®, the vessel is also fitted with complete air and nitrox diving spread and daughter craft, WROV and Obs ROV.
The company says that a high focus on reduced fuel consumption through diesel electric propulsion is in keeping with N-Sea’s commitment to an improved environmental performance across its fleet.
Commenting on the agreement extension, N-Sea CEO, Gerard Keser said: “N-Sea is extremely pleased to have extended its original agreement with Siem Offshore. It is clear testament to proven capability of both the vessel and the N-Sea team aboard the Siem N-Sea and back onshore. We look forward to the continuation of this excellent working relationship.”
