Karmsund Maritime Service to build ROV/survey vessel for ØstensjøYard News // March 2, 2006
Karmsund Maritime Service is to build Østensjø Rederi's new ST 254 C D.
Østensjø Rederi has signed a contract with Karmsund Marine Service worth approximately NKr 375 million to build the ST 254 CD ROV/survey vessel that Østensjø announced it planned to build last month. The vessel will be delivered December 2007.
Østensjø Rederi has been awarded an eight-year contract by DeepOcean for the vessel, the main duties of which will be inspection, subsea mapping and light construction.
The design is based on the experience DeepOcean has with the MPSV Edda Fonn, which was built in 2003.
