Norway's Oceanteam Shipping said that its construction support vessel (CSV) Southern Ocean will support Fugro for a deepwater remotely operated vehicles (ROV) subsea installation project off the coast of Sabah, Malaysia.
The offshore services company said in a press release that the mobilization of CSV Southern Ocean will start early in July 2019 in Singapore. The works are expected to be completed sometime in the third quarter of 2019, the company added.
CSV Southern Ocean is jointly owned by Bourbon and Oceanteam. The 2010-built Southern Ocean is a DP2 construction support/flexible product installation vessel used for field support, construction, installation, and IRM.
Mathieu Feisthauer, Fleet and Chartering Manager of Oceanteam, noted that Fugro, Oceanteam and the Southern Ocean have a long history together.
In April, CSV Southern Ocean was hired by Fugro to undertake an inspection, repair and maintenance (IRM) program offshore in Australia, but the charter was canceled due to weather-related work delays and a subsequent extension of a previous charter.
