Mermaid Maritime’s Indonesian business unit PT Seascape Surveys Indonesia has agreed an additional one-year charter for the DP2 multi-purpose support vessel (MPSV) Resolution.
The Resolution is a remotely operated vehicle and air diving support vessel. The vessel has been specially modified for subsea inspection, repair and maintenance duties and construction support tasks and is also capable of geophysical and geotechnical survey. The vessel is equipped with a 20-tonne main crane, 3-tonne general purpose crane, 20-tonne A-frame and accommodation for 60 personnel.
Mermaid had continually chartered the vessel and deployed it to support various subsea projects since December 2013. The continued charter until December 2017 comes at the back of anticipated continuing demand for subsea services in both Indonesia and the rest of the Southeast Asian region. Flying the Indonesian flag, the vessel will be in prime position to secure potential work in Indonesia.
The charter has already started and is in direct continuation from its previous charter, which expired this December 2016. The latest charter comes with a one year extension option which, if exercised, would further extend the charter period through to December 2018.
