Pharos Offshore Hires Deepsea Worker
Pharos Offshore strikes a 12-month deal for the former Skandi Inspector
Pharos Offshore Group are in the process of mobilising the newly named DP2 Deepsea Worker with a Work Class ROV, an Observation Class ROV and a subsea excavation spread, ready for 2016/2017 operations.
Aleron Subsea will be Pharos Offshore’s ROV partner during the period, providing a comprehensive vehicle support package, whilst Pharos operates the equipment.
Amongst the equipment to become available on the vessel will be a full Pre-Lay Grapnel Run spread, boulder clearance spread and cable recovery spread.
The company entered discussions with the vessel owners in early February for the vessel, which has become available after her 5-yearly inspection. The vessel, with a clear deck space of 540m₂ and 50te construction crane, will be mobilised in Bergen and re-birthed in the Port of Blyth alongside Pharos Offshore’s quayside storage facility.
