Norway’s DOF Subsea has secured contracts with an estimated value of Nkr80M (US$9.2M) from clients in the UK and Norway to be carried out over the next few months in the North Sea.
The contracts are for a variety of activities and capabilities including unexploded ordnance (UXO) investigation and detonation, seabed mapping, pipeline and structural inspection, and seabed rectification support.
Three additional North Sea frame agreements for inspection, maintenance and repair (IMR) and survey work were also secured by DOF Subsea.
In total, the contracts utilise approximately 100 vessel days.
For the awards, DOF Subsea will deploy two construction support vessels, Skandi Skansen and Geosund, and the anchor handling tug supply vessel Skandi Hera.
