I would like to also thank all our financial supporting groups and most of all our Charters who believed strongly in our fleet. It shows UDS will now move to the next level in the Subsea sector.

“Right now we feel the Subsea market is in the infancy of a break-out. The last few years have been very tough for all companies in the Industry. At UDS we are in a very good position to be competitive in any market,”
