Telford Offshore Adds Seven Vessels to Its Fleet

Telford Offshore has acquired an additional DP3 pipelay and accommodation vessel, and six offshore support vessels following a legal settlement between Sea Trucks Group (STGL in liquidation) and West African Ventures (WAV).

The transaction allows Telford to grow and diversify its global offering, bringing its DP3 fleet numbers to five, the company said.

The DP3 vessel, Jascon 30, is set to be dry docked in the coming months and upgraded in preparation for utilization under its new name, Telford 30. The vessel will be ready for deployment later in 2019.

Meanwhile, the six offshore support vessels, which are all anchor handlers, will be deployed in Nigeria with Telford’s partner Afrimarine Charters.

Fraser Moore, Telford Offshore chief executive officer, said: “Adding to our fleet with these seven assets allows Telford to further enhance our presence in West Africa and elsewhere. The Telford 30 in particular will offer a unique combination of DP pipelay, moored pipelay, heavy lift and accommodation support from one asset. Telford is now even better placed to support IOCs and other contractors by offering cost effective multifunctional vessel solutions across a range of project activities.”

Ivan Coyard, Telford Offshore chief financial officer, added: “We are pleased to see the settlement enacted after two years of litigation, allowing Telford Offshore to manage and operate a larger asset base and to further build and develop the group. We will have a larger asset base, stronger balance sheet with no additional debt.”
