Dutch offshore support vessel operator Glomar Offshore announced Thursday it has purchased a pair of support vessels from French owner Bourbon Offshore.

The 2008-built Bourbon Arethuse and 2009-built Bourbon Amilcar will be renamed Glomar Worker and Glomar Supporter, respectively, and will be dedicated to subsea and survey projects for oil and gas and renewables clients in the North Sea and Baltic, Glomar said.

The vessels will receive modifications and upgrades at Glomar's Globaltic Marine yard in Gdynia, Poland.

Glomar also noted that its other recently acquired vessels, Minkar, Situla and Shaula (ex Halul 10, 11 and 12, all 2002-built), are being upgraded and are expected to be ready for work by the third quarter of 2019.
