Ocean Infinity has launched its third vessel – the Normand Frontier.
The vessel has now been mobilised, having been signed on a three-year year charter with the Norwegian ship owner Solstad Offshore in December 2018.
The mobilisation of this third vessel adds to Ocean Infinity’s current fleet consisting of the Seabed Constructor and MV Island Pride.
The Normand Frontier is a multi-purpose vessel capable of both supporting AUV and USV operations, as well as deep water search and recovery services.
Ocean Infinity now operates three permanently mobilised subsea vessels each equipped with 5 AUVs, 3 USVs, 2 ROVs, full ocean depth hull mounted multi-beam echo-sounder, deep-water 45 tonnes fibre rope winch and construction class crane.
Oliver Plunkett, Ocean Infinity’s CEO, said: “This is another landmark moment for Ocean Infinity and an important step in consolidating our position as the industry leader in sub-sea technology and data. Driven by demand from clients wishing to move away from legacy technologies the mobilisation of a third vessel allows us to service our clients globally across a range of sectors and materially improves the bandwidth of our offering.
“We are very pleased to be working with Solstad Offshore, a leader in the provision of specialized offshore vessels and we are very excited to be continuing on our strong growth trajectory. We look forward to delivering our enhanced international service as we continue to be pioneers within our industry.”
