Rem Offshore sells new AHTSVessel & ROV News // February 16, 2009
LR-Fairplay reports that Rem Offshore has sold a new anchor handling tug supply vessel (AHTS) ahead of a predicted market slump.
CEO Arild Myrvoll told Fairplay: “We want a good cash position,” he said, adding, “we think we can get a good price for the vessel.”
Rem Viking is being built at Norway’s Kleven Verft and will be delivered in March or April, at least three months behind its original handover date.
It has no charter in place and will join the North Sea spot market.
The buyer is thought to be Varun, who bought Rem Odin in January for a reported US$60.1 million, according to brokers.
