Ocean Infinity said it has agreed a seven-year contract with Island Offshore for Island Pride.
The vessel should expand Ocean Infinity’s platform for AUV data acquisition and analysis, and support a variety of operations globally.
Island Pride is a multi-functional subsea support and construction vessel of UT 737 design, 103 meters in length with a beam of 21 meters and free deck space of 880 square meters.

Given our success in the market and our clear path to future growth we felt it was important to expand by partnering for the long term. Island Offshore have proved to be a great vessel owner to work with and we look forward to a long and successful relationship as our business continues its rapid expansion.”
