Prosafe acquires the Polyconcord

Prosafe ASA has entered into an agreement with K/S Rasmussen Offshore A/S for the purchase of the semisubmersible accommodation and service rig Polyconcord for US $34.5 million.

Polyconcord is currently located at Hanoytangen outside Bergen, and will be outfitted for a tropical climate and towed to the Gulf of Mexico early March this year.

This acquisition supports Prosafe’s strategy of building a fleet of purpose-built semisubmersible accommodation and service rigs for the global deepwater accommodation segment. Prosafe will continue to evaluate opportunities to also utilise the vessels in other operating modes and/or other geographical regions outside the North Sea and the Gulf of Mexico in a longer term perspective.
