Last month we discussed the Toisa OCV fleet, and this week we shall focus on the offshore supply vessels (OSV). Within the Toisa fleet, OSVs made up circa 73% of the overall fleet size and generated more than $40 million during a two-year sell off. What has become of these assets? Who owns them now? Have they been successfully repurposed, and if so, what contracts are they working on?
