Bourbon Orca is the subject of a new three-year deal with Hydro.
Hydro has confirmed that it has entered into a three-year agreement regarding the AHTS Bourbon Orca.
The contract is valued at around NKr 250 million, and the deal with Bourbon Offshore Norway also incudes three one-year option periods which will increase the total value of the contract to around NKr 500 million.
