TechnipFMC and DOF Subsea PLSV Begins Petrobras Campaign

TechnipFMC and DOF Subsea joint venture has taken delivery of a newbuild pipelay support vessel (PLSV) the Skandi Búzios.

The PLSV started its 8-year charter contract with Petrobras on April 13, 2017.

Skandi Búzios is the sistership of the Skandi Açu, which started its charter contract on August 13, 2016. These two vessels have a flexible pipelay tension capacity of 650 tons, enabling the installation of large diameter flexible pipes in the ultra-deepwater Brazilian pre-salt area.

Under the 50:50 joint venture agreement, TechnipFMC is responsible for the engineering and management of the flexible pipelay, while Norskan S.A., a DOF ASA subsidiary, is responsible for the marine operations.

Hallvard Hasselknippe, TechnipFMC’s president of Subsea Projects, stated: “We are confident that these new state-of-the-art PLSVs, together with the expertise of our people will be key for Petrobras to successfully achieve its projects offshore Brazil.”

Mons S. Aase, DOF Subsea’s chief executive officer, added: “This milestone project is the result of our long-term focus on the Brazilian market. We are proud of this significant addition to our Brazilian fleet.”
