The vessel is fitted with additional equipment to target subsea intervention programs, including increased accommodation for 52, has a 20t subsea crane and additional position reference systems.
Hallinís marine management division will operate the vessel, along with the subsea operations vessels†Ullswater,†Windermere, which is currently being fitted out in Singapore, following its launch in December last year, and†Sanko Angel.
