GC Rieber Shipping awarded option for survey vessel

British Antarctic Survey (BAS), a unit of the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), has declared its fifth and final option for a one-year extension of the bareboat charter for Norwegian owner GC Rieber Shipping’s survey vessel RRS Ernest Shackleton. The option will be effective from August 2018.

The 1995-built vessel has been on a long-term charter with BAS since August 1999.

“British Antarctic Survey’s declaration of the fifth and final option is a testament to GC Rieber Shipping ability of designing and developing durable and reliable assets for ice and harsh operational environments,” said Christian Berg, CEO of GC Rieber Shipping.
