Statoil sticks with DOF anchor handler for another year

DOF, a Norwegian shipping company, has received a contract extension for one of its vessels from compatriot oil major Statoil.

DOF said on Monday that the vessel in question is the 2010-built anchor handler, Skandi Vega.

According to the company, the vessel was given a one-year extension which will begin in mid-May and will be a direct continuation of the current contract.

The vessel has been operating for Statoil for several years and has already had several contract extensions, the last of which came in February 2016. It was a one-year contract plus a one-year extension option, which started in May that year.

The vessel itself was designed for deepwater anchor handling during demanding environmental conditions. The Skandi Vega is 109 meters long, with a working moonpool, a working deck area of 1,070 square meters, an anchor recovery frame, main winch capacity of 500 tonnes and a secondary one of 170 tonnes, and a bollard pull of 350 tonnes.
