    Kingfisher crosses the Atlantic

    Contracts, Tenders and Rates // March 14, 2003
    Seabrokers reports that Atlantic Towing's AHTS UT722L Atlantic Kingfisher "migrated" across the North Atlantic Ocean to arrive in Aberdeen in mid-February.

    The 80m long double drum winch AHTS was delivered in January in Canada from Halifax Shipyards.

    Seabrokers said the owner's decision to bring the vessel to the North Sea was based on the current lull in drilling activity on the East Coast of Canada.

    The next AHTS UT722L in this series for Atlantic will be the Atlantic Osprey, which is due fordelivery in early summer.

    The Kingfisher kicked off its North Sea career with a fixture to GlobalSantaFe for the rig move of their Glomar Arctic IV.
