US-based subsea technology and data company Ocean Infinity has added a third vessel to its fleet
Normand Frontier is described as a “modern, fuel-efficient, multi-purpose vessel capable of both supporting autonomous underwater vehicles and unmanned surface vehicle operations, as well as deep water search and recovery services.”
The vessel has now been mobilised, having been signed on a three-year year charter with the Norwegian shipowner Solstad Offshore in December 2018.
Ocean Infinity’s CEO Oliver Plunkett said: “We are very pleased to be working with Solstad Offshore and we are very excited to be continuing on our strong growth trajectory.”
This third vessel adds to Ocean Infinity’s current fleet, which consists of Seabed Constructor and MV Island Pride. Seabed Constructor had previously been deployed in the search for the missing Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 in 2018. In July 2019, Island Pride localised the wreck of Grande America.
Mr Plunkett described the launch as “an important step in consolidating our position as the industry leader in subsea technology and data.”
