Dutch subsea services specialist N-Sea has signed a long-term vessel deal with Cyprus-based EDT Offshore for the 1991-built multipurpose offshore support vessel EDT Protea.
The DP3 vessel has a strong track record in subsea services in both air diving and remotely operated vehicle intervention work in the North Sea market.
“By having long term control over vessels allows N-Sea to provide safer, and more efficient, operations working with fully committed and integrated teams on board,” the company said in a release.
In addition to the previously announced agreement with Geo Plus for the Geo Focus, the EDT Protea is one of the six vessels that N-Sea will have under full management and control. The parties will commence their joint operations under the agreement in March 2022.
