Eidesvik sells seismic survey vessel

Oslo-listed Eidesvik Shipping, part of of Eidesvik Offshore, has signed a memorandum of agreement with an unnamed buyer for the sale of its seismic survey vessel Viking II (4,410 dwt, built 1999).

A price for the ship (pictured) was not disclosed, but the company said the sale was done close to the book value of the vessel.

Viking II will be delivered to the buyer in the third or fourth quarter this year, Eidesvik said.

The Norway-built survey vessel is equipped with integrated geophysical and navigation data acquisition systems, onboard data processing and quality assurance capabilities, according to the company’s website.
