Written by  OE Staff Wednesday, 19 April 2017 03:35

TechnipFMC and DOF Subsea's jointly owned Skandi Búzios pipelay support vessel (PLSV) has started its 8-year charter with Petrobras.

Skandi Búzios is the sistership of the Skandi Açu, which started its charter contract almost exactly a year ago. The two vessels have 650-ton flexible pipelay tension capacity, enabling the installation of large diameter flexible pipes in the ultra deepwater Brazilian pre-salt area.

Under the joint venture agreement, TechnipFMC is responsible for the engineering and management of the flexible pipelay, while Norskan, a DOF subsidiary, is responsible for the marine operations.
