Olympic AHTSs get contracts in West Africa and the Caribbean

Four offshore support vessels owned by Norway’s Olympic Shipping have won new employment contracts in West Africa and in the Caribbean.

Its anchor handling tug supply (AHTS) vessels Olympic Hercules and Olympic Pegasus will work on a contract in West Africa for up to 24 weeks, including options. The AHTS Olympic Zeus will be deployed for nine weeks including options.

Meanwhile, the AHTS and offshore construction vessel (OCV) Olympic Hera has been awarded an eight-week contract with an “international contractor” for work in Trinidad & Tobago.

All the vessels’ contracts have commenced, Olympic said, but did not reveal the value of the contracts.

Olympic laid up two AHTS vessels and a platform support vessel and laid off 60 of its 800 staff in October 2015, which mainly affected temporary staff and contractors. In February, it implemented voluntary wage reductions at its Fosnavåg office in Herøy.
