Wagenborg’s supply vessel hired for work in Canadian Arctic waters

International offshore specialist Wagenborg Offshore, a subsidiary of Royal Wagenborg, has been awarded a long-term contract by Fathom Marine, a provider of  marine logistics services to offshore industry. 

Wagenborg said on Monday that the five-year contract with Fathom Marine, starting mid-July 2017, was for the multi-purpose offshore supply vessel Arcticaborg.

The company added that the vessel would be used for the provision of marine support in the Western Canadian Arctic.

The vessel will be operating from the port of Vancouver in Canada. From this port, the Arcticaborg would provide ice-breaking support, ice navigation assistance, fuel supply, salvage, and will make cargo runs on a regular basis.

The vessel was previously active in several oil and gas related projects in the Caspian Sea, which is characterized by shallow waters and severe ice conditions. After working for twenty years in the region, it will take on a new project in a similar environment.

Arcticaborg is currently on its way from Wagenborg’s Kazakhstan base in Bautino, heading to Vancouver. At the moment, the vessel is moored in the port of Astrakhan.

The 65-metre vessel and its sister vessel, Antarcticaborg, were built at Kvaerner Masa-Yards, Helsinki, and delivered to Wagenborg in 1998.
