Norwegian offshore support vessel owner DOF Subsea has received a notice of early termination of a two-year charter contract for the construction support vessel (CSV) Skandi Acergy from an international client
Built in 2008 based on an Aker OSCV 06L design, Skandi Acergy has accommodation for 140, a helipad, moonpool, remotely operated vehicle (ROV) hangar, two deck cranes and two offshore cranes, one with a SWL 400 tonnes and a second with a SWL 100 tonnes.
Bergen-headquartered DOF Subsea said the notice period of the termination is 60 days, making it effective on 1 July 2020. As a result of the termination, DOF Subsea will be entitled to a termination fee.
In more positive news, DOF Subsea announced the award of two charter agreements for two other vessels.

Skandi Skansen is a STX AH 04 design anchor handler/installation vessel owned by DOF Installer ASA. With an overall length of 107 m, beam of 24 m, and accommodation for 90, Skandi Skansen has a helipad, moonpool, ROV hangar, six deck cranes and an offshore crane with a SWL of 250 tonnes.

DOF Subsea also secured a six-month firm contract for one of its older CSVs from an international client, with options to extend the contract by up to 12 months.
