Subsea IMR provider, N-Sea, has increased its fleet through the long term charter of Siem Offshore’s offshore subsea construction vessel, the Siem Barracuda.
The vessel is equipped specifically for subsea IMR, survey and construction operations, featuring twin WROVs, moonpool deployed, a 250T AHC crane and accommodation for 110 personnel.
Roddy James, chief operating officer at N-Sea, said: “The Siem Barracuda has added another highly efficient dive support and survey vessel to the N-Sea fleet. Its technical specifications not only increase our capabilities across the subsea IRM field, but also build upon the safe, efficient ethos for which N-Sea is renowned.
“This is a state-of-the-art subsea vessel, which increases our ability to operate within greater parameters of harsh weather. Additional bed space, a large active heave compensation crane and the option for simultaneous moonpool deployment of ROVs and air nitrox diving, all illustrate N-Sea’s capacity for safe, sound and swift operability within oil and gas and renewables markets. This is further reinforced by the addition of a permanent air nitrox daughter craft.”
