DOF Subsea has informed that its newbuild vessel, Skandi Vinland, has started a contract with Husky Energy in Canada.
In September 2015, DOF Subsea secured the contract with Husky Energy for the construction of a new light intervention vessel (LIV) committed to a 10-year inspection, maintenance and repair (IMR) project off the East Coast of Canada.
The contract between the parties has a further 10 years option, the company said in a previous press release.
The Skandi Vinland, of Vard 3 08 design, was built in Norway. It has a length of 93.2 meters, beam of 20.0 meters and can accommodate up to 55 persons on board.
Mons S. Aase, the CEO of DOF Subsea, said: “This is a cornerstone contract for the group with high strategic importance through strengthened presence in the North America subsea region.”
