DOF Subsea's newbuild light intervention vessel the Skandi Vinland has started a 10-year contract with Husky Energy of the east coast of Canada.
Under the contract, the DOF Subsea team based in St. John's will supply inspection, maintenance and repair (IMR) services over 10 years, with options for an additional 10 years.
The work scope includes an IMR vessel and two work class ROV systems and personnel. Offshore operations started in Q4 2015, by mobilizing two work class ROVs on a third party vessel on charter to Husky.
The 93.2m-long, 20m-beam, Skandi Vinland was designed and built in Norway to a Vard 3 08 design. It has accommodation for 55 people.
DOF Subsea CEO Mons S. Aase said: "This is a cornerstone contract for the group with high strategic importance through strengthened presence in the North America subsea region."
