    Troms Offshore to acquire two more vessels

    Vessel & ROV News // June 29, 2007

    Troms Offshore in Norway has announced that, via Troms Gemini IS, the company has signed a contract for the acquisition of two large VS 485 CD PSVs.

    TromsGemini IS was formed by Pareto Private Equity in collaboration with Johan G Olsen Shipbrokers. The ships, Troms Castor and Troms Pollux, are under construction and will be delivered by Helles°y Shipyard in August 2008 and January 2009.

    The sellers are Solvik Offshore KS and Solvik Offshore II KS, respectively.

    The ships are designed by Vik-Sandvik, one of Norway's leading naval architects. The design was developed with an eye to reduced emissions, and with Clean Design class notation.

    Troms Offshore already has a VS495 DEM CD Mk II under construction, to which it has recently decided to add a 150 tonne crane and helideck.
