Norway’s GC Rieber Shipping sealed a time charter agreement with an unnamed European offshore client for 2011-built construction support vessel Polar Queen.
The charter is for a fixed period of four months and includes options to extend by an additional month. It will be used in the British sector of the North Sea to perform walk-to-work duties.
Christian Berg, CEO of GC Rieber Shipping, commented: “We are pleased to see Polar Queen build on her success in the walk-to-work market and secure a new substantial charter with Tier 1 clients. With this charter, GC Rieber Shipping is sold out for the summer of 2018. Both Polar King and Polar Onyx are now on solid long terms charters, and the agreement for Polar Queen proves the robustness of our crew and organizational capabilities.”
The vessel will commence the charter in May 2018.
