Pharos Offshore strikes deal for former Skandi InspectorVessel & ROV News // May 17, 2016
Pharos Offshore Group is in the process of mobilising the newly re-named DP2 Deepsea Worker with a work-class ROV, observation-class ROV and a subsea excavation spread, ready for 2016/2017 operations.
Aleron Subsea will be Pharos Offshore’s ROV partner during the period, providing a comprehensive vehicle support package, whilst Pharos operates the equipment.
Amongst the equipment to become available on the vessel will be a full pre-lay grapnel run spread, boulder clearance spread and cable recovery spread.
The company entered discussions with the vessel owners in early February for the vessel, which has become available after her five-yearly inspection. The vessel, with a clear deck space of 540m₂ and 50te construction crane, will be mobilised in Bergen and re-berthed in the Port of Blyth alongside Pharos Offshore’s quayside storage facility.
