Offshore construction support vessel Southern Ocean, owned by Bourbon and Oceanteam, has entered into a contract with Fugro to support a project off the coast of Australia.
The vessel will undertake a program of IRM work for Fugro, and mobilisation will start mid May 2019 once its current charter with McDermott in India has ended.
Keesjan Cordia, chairman of Oceanteam, commented: “We are well on our way to create a firm basis to grow the company on both the Shipping and Solutions part of the group. This contract award by Fugro re-affirms the appreciation of the capabilities of the Southern Ocean as a premium IRM vessel. We look forward to continue and deepen our relationship with all our long-term clients in the future.”
