Brazilian-flagged flexible lay and construction vessel, Skandi Olinda, owned by the 50-50 joint venture formed between TechnipFMC and DOF, has started its 8-year charter contract with Petróleo Brasileiro (Petrobras).

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

Skandi Olinda, the final of four vessels, has a 340-ton Vertical Lay System tower capacity, a 2,500-ton 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, built by Vard Promar,  was named at the end of January in a ceremony held in Brazil.

Arnaud Piéton, president Subsea at TechnipFMC, said: “We are delighted that the Skandi Olinda is joining our fleet of specialized vessels. This new charter contract with Petrobras reinforces our commitment to the development of the Brazilian market and our extensive ultra-deepwater pipelaying experience. We are looking forward to seeing the vessel delivering projects in the field.”

DOF Subsea CEO, Mons S. Aase, added: “The extensive newbuild program of 4 pipelay support vessels together with TechnipFMC has combined the subsea and vessel expertise across our organizations. Taking final delivery of Skandi Olinda and commencing the contract with Petrobras marks the successful conclusion of the newbuild program of the joint venture, which now has 6 vessels.”
