    DOF takes delivery of supply vessel Skandi Sotra

    Vessel & ROV News // February 14, 2003
    A new PSV for District Offshore, the Skandi Sotra, has been delivered by Kleven Maritime's Myklebust Verft in Norway.

    Skandi Sotra was originally conceived as a sister ship to Skandi Rona, which was delivered by the same yard in April 2002, but the basic MT6000 design from Marin Teknikk has been modified somewhat to suit the owner's current thinking and the eight year Statoil charter that will see the vessel working in the North Sea.

    Major changes to the structure include the provision of a stern door to allow direct loading of containers, and an extra deck in the superstructure that can be fitted out later as additional accommodation.

    There have also been numerous changes in the equipment type and manufacturer.

    The hull of the vessel as fabricated in Romania, the hull and superstructure towed to Myklebust yard at Gursken in west Norway for fitting out.
