Island Spirit laid up for the winterVessel & ROV News // November 4, 2015
Island Offshore has decided to lay up the ROV/survey vessel Island Spirit for the winter season. Typical duties performed by Island Spirit are IMR work, survey work and ROV operations but the activity in this segment is expected to fall in the coming months.
“We are working on relocating some of the crew, but unfortunately there will be some temporary lay-offs. Our hope is that the vessel will be fully operative in the beginning of 2016 with the same crew on board,” said the company's Managing Director, Håvard Ulstein.
Island Offshore now has six vessels laid up: three platform supply vessels, two light well intervention vessels, and the survey vessel. The three latter vessels are only laid up only for the winter months.
