Global Marine’s C.S. Sovereign Gets SPS Notation

Global Marine Systems has achieved Special Purpose Ships (SPS) notation for its C.S. Sovereign multi-role DPS-2 vessel.

The achievement means that C.S. Sovereign can now carry up to 50 people on board over and above the working crew, such as client representatives or project specific personnel, the company explained.

“Gaining SPS notation has taken two years and a lot of hard work in consultation with ABS [our classification society] and the UK Flag State for the vessel in the form of the MCA,” said captain Simon Hibberd, director fleet & operational support at Global Marine.

“It opens up opportunities for C.S. Sovereign that we previously have not had. It’s been a big undertaking for the ship and crew to achieve; however this is an important development as the SPS notation offers genuine market differentiation positioning us to meet the demands of the ever changing offshore market.”
