Deepsea Supply puts more PSVs in cold layupVessel & ROV News // October 1, 2015
Deep Sea Supply has put more ships in its fleet into layup. The company says seven platform supply vessels (PSVs) are operating under bareboat charter contracts, but five are in cold layup. Cold layup indicates that the company does not expect to bring the vessels back into operation quickly.
In September Deep Sea Supply’s PSV fleet had an average gross income of approximately US$13,000 per ship per day compared to US$14,200 in August. The AHTS fleet (all 14 AHTS vessels) had an average gross income of approximately US$14,700 per ship per day compared to US$20,700 in August.
Nine of the company’s anchor-handling tug/supply (AHTS) vessels and 12 of the PSVs are owned 50 per cent by DESS through DESS BTG in Brazil.
