    Tidewater takes delivery of supply vessels

    Vessel & ROV News // March 15, 2002
    Tidewater in the US has taken delivery of the Miss Jane Tide, its first VS 480 platform supply vessel built by the company's own yard, Quality Shipyards in Houma, Louisiana.

    The ship, designed by the Norwegian firm Vik-Sandvik, is the first of four identical vessels to be built by Quality. The Miss Jane Tide is a 260ft PSV and is the first domestically constructed vessel to be delivered under Tidewater's new construction program announced in January 2000.

    In addition, Tidewater has also taken delivery of the Ace Nature, one of eight vessels acquired from The Sanko Steamship Co Ltd. At 276ft, the Ace Nature, a UT 745 PSV, is one of the largest ships among Tidewater's fleet.

    Upon entering into Tidewater's available fleet, both the Miss Jane Tide and the Ace Nature went on charter with large international oil companies at rates of $20,000 per day.
