Norwegian vessel owner Eidesvik has secured a two-year contract extension in the renewables market for the vessel Acergy Viking.
According to the Oslo-listed company, the Acergy Viking is fixed until end-January 2020 as service operation vessel (SOV) for Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy in German sector.
Contract extension is in direct continuation of current charter period and charterers have options beyond the firm period.
The Acergy Viking was previously a survey vessel, but after remodeling it was converted into a so-called wind farm support/light construction vessel.
“We are proud of the solid operations delivered by the vessel and crew resulting in this long term extension.
“This extension will enable us to further strengthen our relationship with a strategic important client for Eidesvik in this exiting and evolving market,” says CEO Jan Fredrik Meling.
