Island Crown to Support OceanGate’s Titanic Expedition

Island Offshore has entered into an agreement with OceanGate Expeditions for the use of Island Crown as support vessel during the first manned submersible expedition to the wreck of the RMS Titanic since 2005.

The assignment should start in May 2018 and will have a duration of 10 weeks for Island Crown.

The vessel will depart from St. John’s, Newfoundland, and will act as accommodation and dive support ship for the expedition team throughout the expedition.

Summer season 2017

The Island Crown just finished a month-long walk-to-work job for Bluestream at Nordsee One Wind Park and just changed client this week to Van Oord, still on the same wind farm. The vessel has secured additional work until the end of September.

Since delivery in 2013 the subsea construction vessel Island Crown has mainly performed walk-to-work duties at oil, gas and wind installations. The vessel is 96.8 metres long and 20 metres wide with accommodation for 100 persons on board. The Island Crown is equipped with a gang way system, subsea crane, a helideck, large tank capacity and holds a deck cargo area of 561m2.
