    N-Sea adds high spec vessel to its fleet

    Vessel & ROV News // November 3, 2016

    Subsea IMR provider N-Sea has added to its fleet through the long term charter of Siem Offshore’s subsea construction vessel, Siem Barracuda.

    The vessel is equipped specifically for subsea IMR, survey and construction operations, featuring twin work-class ROVs which are moonpool-deployed, a 250 tonne AHC crane and accommodation for 110 people.

    Roddy James, Chief Operating Officer at N-Sea, said: “Siem Barracuda has added another highly efficient dive support and survey vessel to the N-Sea fleet. Its technical specifications not only increase our capabilities across the subsea IMR field, but also build upon the safe, efficient ethos for which N-Sea is renowned.

    “This is a state-of-the-art subsea vessel," said Mr James, "which increases our ability to operate within greater parameters of harsh weather. Additional bed space, a large active heave compensation crane and the option for simultaneous moonpool deployment of ROVs and air nitrox diving, all illustrate N-Sea’s capacity for safe, sound and swift operability within oil and gas and renewables markets. This is further reinforced by the addition of a permanent air nitrox daughter craft.”
