Norway’s Solstad Offshore has been awarded a contract for the 2016-built construction support vessel Normand Maximus.
The vessel will support operations for a client in Latin America for a period of five months, including mobilisation and de-mobilisation. Work is scheduled to commence during December 2020.
In September, Solstad Offshore received a notice of early termination from Saipem Portugal for the vessel. The original charter, which commenced in 2016, was for eight years. The early termination left Solstad with a loss of backlog of around $200m, although the company was entitled to a termination fee of around $45m.
