Axis Offshore has ordered a semi-submersible accommodation vessel satisfying the stringent North Sea operating requirements. The unit will be delivered in the first quarter of 2015.

Axis Offshore is a newly established joint venture between Danish shipowner J Lauritzen and oil and gas private equity firm HitecVision.

The new accommodation vessel will target the demand for modern units able to operate in the harsh environment in the North Sea, especially in the Norwegian and UK sector.

Axis Offshore has selected Global Maritime’s GM500A design. It will be built by Cosco Qidong Offshore Co Ltd, which has a strong track record of building similar units.

The contract with Cosco includes options for two more units, valid for 12 months and 24 months respectively.
