    News // November 7, 2003
    The last month has seen a stream of vessels heading for lay up, reports Seabrokers.

    Among these are several anchor-handlers from TFDS's fleet. The AHTS UT704Troms Tjeld has been moved to Leith to go into warm lay up since it finished it's Irish Wind Farm contract.

    However, said Seabrokers, the owners have been quoting the vessel as available for work.

    Meanwhile the AHTS UT708 Aldoma left for lay up in Malta around the same timeas the Tjeld. The Aldoma is used to the sunnier climes having spent spring and summer with Repsol off Spain.

    Both of the anchor-handlers have given possible lay-up departure times as spring next year.
