    EDT Offshore conversion due to enter service shortly

    Vessel & ROV News // May 17, 2006

    Broker Seaccope Offshore says EDT Offshore's conversion EDT Protea will finally enter service in June/July.

    The conversion of the former Geco Sapphire to DP3 ROV/survey vessel has been under way in Poland for some time, and has taken far longer than originally anticipated.

    The vessel was due to be lengthened, have a new helideck installed, along with a ROV hangar, 50 tonne crane capable of working at depths of 2,500m and accommodation for 70-90 persons.

    According to Seascope Offshore, EDT Protea is the subject of a two-year charter in the Gulf of Mexico with Phoenix International.

    Once completed, she was due to have a deck area in the region of 600 square metres.

    Last year, the Cyprus based shipowners, managers and operator changed its name from EDT Towage and Salvage to EDT Offshore.
