Reach Subsea vessels win new North Sea contracts

Norwegian subsea operator Reach Subsea has entered into short- and medium-term contracts with different “international” clients for two of its offshore service vessels.

Reach’s research/survey vessel Edda Fonn (2,800 dwt, built 2003) and its construction support vessel Normand Reach (4,750 dwt, built 2014) will both undertake construction, survey and inspection work in the North Sea from the third quarter.

Neither the clients, the duration nor the financial terms of the contracts were disclosed.

Edda Fonn (pictured) recently departed from Eemshaven in the Netherlands and has just arrived at the EnBW Hohe See offshore windfarm, according to the vessel’s latest AIS update.

The windfarm, which is located in German waters of the North Sea, is owned by German electricity company EnBW Energie Baden-Württemberg.

Normand Reach left Harwich in England last week and is currently at anchor off the east coast of the country.

“I am satisfied that our strong focus on operational performance and sales activities has been successful, improving our horizon in a demanding market situation,” Reach Subsea’s CEO, Jostein Alendal, said in a filing.
