Ocean Installer Charters ‘Grand Canyon’ for UK Operations

Ocean Installer signed short term charter for the OCV/ROV vessel Grand Canyon in order to meet project requirements.

Due to an increasing order book Ocean Installer is experiencing high utilisation of its current fleet and recognises the need for increased vessel capacity in the UK.

“We have seen the need for additional vessels and we are pleased that we have secured the Grand Canyon in order to execute project commitments in a safe and timely manner for our client,” says Martin Sisley, UK Managing Director of Ocean Installer.

The Grand Canyon is a purpose built offshore construction/ROV/Survey vessel with a 250T crane. Ocean Installer has agreed a charter party with Canyon Offshore for the vessel, the duration of the charter agreement being from June 2014 for 28 days firm. Ocean Installer will use the vessel for mothership duties in support of a contract awarded for light construction work.

In addition, Ocean Installer recently chartered the DP2 light construction/ROV vessel Dina Star for dredging services.

The Ocean Installer Aberdeen office is managing both projects.
