Østensjø Rederi fixes a PSV, lays up another

Norway’s Østensjø Rederi has fixed a platform supply vessel (PSV) on a two-week contract, but has laid up another.

Its PSV Edda Frigg (9,600 dwt, built 1997) was reported fixed at an unreported rate to perform supply duties in the North Sea for Dana Petroleum for 14 days.

The ship has just completed a supply contract in the region with Wood Group, which was fixed on March 30 at an unreported rate, according to data from Kristiansand-based shipbroker Westshore.

Meanwhile, Edda Fram (10,520 bhp, built 2007) has been laid up at Haugesund in Norway, according to Westshore.

On Monday, another of Østensjø’s PSVs, Edda Frende (11,902 bhp, built 2009), was reported fixed on a term charter to Nippon UK to support drilling activities for one firm well. The contract period is estimated at around 70 days and was fixed at an unreported rate. In early April, the vessel had been earning £4,000 per day on a 10-day supply duties contract to BP UK.
