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."
