Glomar Offshore lands standby vessel contract in Gabon

Dutch offshore support vessel operator Glomar Offshore has fixed 1986-built standby vessel Glomar 4-winds to compatriot Rederij Groen for a seasonal term contract in Gabon.

The vessel will perform seismic guard and chase duties for a period of five months, and is Glomar’s first deployment in Sub-Saharan Africa.

This latest contract is Glomar’s second deployment outside the North Sea, offering seasonal coverage during the subdued North Sea winter market.

Last week, Glomar fixed standby vessel Glomar Linde to Redeji Groen for a period of 12-24 months.
