    BP's fourth RSV makes its appearance

    Vessel & ROV News // December 12, 2006

    Seascope Offshore reports that BP’s fourth IMT922 Regional Support Vessel (RSV) –  Caledonian Victory – recently arrived in the North Sea, but will initially work in supply mode like the first three vessels in the series – Caledonian Vanguard, Caledonian Vision, and Caledonian Vigilance.

    All four vessels, which are being managed by Seaguard Offshore, were built at the Yantai Raffles shipyard in China and completed in Singapore – they will form an integral part of BP’s radical ‘Project Jigsaw’ plan during the course of 2007.

    Including the RSVs that are currently being utilised in supply mode BP effectively have ten large PSVs on long term charter – the others being Normand Aurora (P105), Edda Frigg, Maersk Fighter (UT745), Maersk Feeder (UT745), Maersk Fetcher (UT745), and Maersk Forwarder (UT745).
