We are very pleased to be selected as Total’s preferred partner for the next phase of this project. This contract shows the attractiveness of our new series of subsea vessels that meet our client’s expectations for advanced subsea operations in deep water production developments. We highly appreciate the confidence Total, as one of our key clients, is showing us again,” commented Karl-Johan Bakken, CEO of Farstad Shipping.
