TechnipFMC and DOF Subsea jointly owned flexible lay and construction vessel, Skandi Recife, has started its eight-year charter contract with Petróleo Brasileiro (Petrobras) in Brazil.

The vessel will work in the Campos, Santos and Espírito Santo basins.

Skandi Recife is equipped with a 340 tons Vertical Lay System (VLS) tower, 2,500 tons underdeck carousel and two work-class remotely operated vehicles (ROVs), allowing it to lay flexible pipes in water depths up to 2,500 meters.

The vessel was built by Vard Promar Brazilian yard, where its sister ship, Skandi Olinda, is currently under construction.

Under the TechnipFMC/DOF joint venture agreement, TechnipFMC will manage flexible pipelay, and DOF will be responsible for marine operations.

Hallvard Hasselknippe, president of Subsea activities at TechnipFMC, said: “We are very proud of this significant addition to our fleet in Brazil and to our partnership with DOF. The delivery of Skandi Recife and the commencement of a new contract with Petrobras reinforce our commitment to the development of the Brazilian market and our extensive ultra-deepwater pipelaying experience.”

DOF Subsea CEO, Mons S. Aase, added: “Taking delivery of Skandi Recife and commencing the contract with Petrobras is an important milestone in our partnership with TechnipFMC. We are proud of this significant addition to our Brazilian fleet and look forward to seeing the vessel in operation in the years to come.”
