MPSV ‘Ievoli Ivory’ Marks JFMS – Next UKCS Partnership

James Fisher Marine Services (JFMS) has welcomed the multi-purpose support vessel Ievoli Ivory to the Port of Lowestoft.

Ievoli Ivory is in Lowestoft due to a new partnership between JFMS and Next Geosolutions, a joint venture between Marnavi Offshore and Tecno In.

Built by Selah shipyard in Turkey and owned by the Italian shipping company Marnavi, the 90-meter Ievoli Ivory is used for the energy industry’s subsea projects and to service offshore wind farms in particular.

The vessel will be mobilised with specialist ROV technology and dive spreads which will extend its subsea capability, including the Triton XLX work-class ROV, and other integrated subsea, survey and positioning solutions.

Ian Hughes, managing director of JFMS subsea division, said: “We’re delighted to form this partnership with Next UKCS and very excited to be working with Next Geosolutions. We’ve already had a huge amount of interest from clients and the Ievoli Ivory will not only increase our capabilities across the subsea inspection, repair and maintenance (IRM) field, but also adds to our safety-first ethos.”

Perry Balls, director at Next UKCS, said: “The partnership with James Fisher Marine Services is another example of the local supply chain working together and, in turn, supporting the prosperity of the local community with one of our key Group Assets arriving in the region.”
