Skandi Africa Vessel Delivered and Working for Technip
Subsea engineering specialist DOF Subsea Group announced Tuesday that it has taken delivery of the Skandi Africa deepwater subsea construction vessel, which has now begun a five-year charter contract with oilfield services firm Technip.
Named 'Ship of the Year 2015', DOF describes the Skandi Africa as currently the most-advanced vessel in its fleet. It is designed for harsh environment and deepwater subsea construction and flexlay operations – down to 9,800 feet depth.
DOF Subsea CEO Mons S. Aase commented in a company statement:
"Skandi Africa is an example of the team effort between DOF and our main suppliers and business partners, making one of the most sophisticated vessels ever built. It is also a strong statement that the Norwegian offshore industry is competitive in delivering high-end offshore vessels."
