Stork Technical Services adds to its subsea fleetVessel & ROV News // November 8, 2013
Stork Technical Services (Stork) has made a further £2 million investment in a new daughter craft, Edradour.
Edradour will be delivered to the company's subsea division later this month and will provide additional operational support to meet the expanding needs of Stork’s diving operations as well as complementing its existing fleet: daughter craft Aberlour, a mother vessel, Siem Stork; and three dive intervention craft.
Edradour has the same design specification as the Aberlour which will allow both crafts to be interchangeable with the existing twin davit system.
Roddy James, SVP of Stork Technical Subsea, said: “We are very pleased to welcome Edradour to our fleet. The shared design specification allows compatibility with our existing launch and recovery system and will bring familiarisation to all our crews resulting in a greater safety recovery and efficiency in our diving operations”.
In addition, Edradour has additional lifting capability for four point lifting, providing vessel crane launch and recovery capabilities and increased generator capacity - resulting in greater ROV and electrical equipment capacity.
