Norway-headquartered Solstad Offshore has won contracts for three of its construction support vessels (CSVs) for operations in South America, Asia and northern Europe as energy companies return to developing offshore oil and gas resources and diversify into renewables
Its latest award is for CSV Normand Jarstein to support DeepOcean’s light construction, inspection, maintenance, repair offshore renewables and recycling projects. This 2014-built, MT 6022 L design vessel will commence the North Sea contract in Q1 2022.
Normand Jarstein has a firm period of hire until the end of 2023. DeepOcean holds an option to extend this contract until the end of 2024.
Solstad also announced award of two medium-term contracts for large construction vessels for work during the next five months including a contract with an undisclosed client in southeast Asia for 2015-built, Vard 3-07 CSV Normand Navigator, to run from September until the end of the year.
The other contract is for 2014-built Normand Frontier in South America. This contract is with an unnamed large international contractor to support an ultra-deep subsea project for a firm duration of 100 days and includes 60 days of charter extension options, but the contract excludes mobilisation and demobilisation.
Solstad said Vard 3-03 design Normand Frontier has already started mobilising for the contract.
