Newbuild vessel, Maersk Involver, has been fixed for 161 days to support maintenance of the DAN F platform, located offshore Esbjerg for walk-to-walk and accommodation services, Maersk Supply Service said on March 11.
The contract is expected to commence start-April 2019.
The first long-term walk-to-work contract with Total Denmark was awarded to Maersk Supply Service in July 2018, for anchor handling tug supply vessel Maersk Tracker to provide multi-purpose field support for three years firm in the North Sea.
Delivered in November 2017, Maersk Involver’s proven stability, DP3 station keeping capabilities and 120 modern single cabins make it an ideal platform for walk-to-work services. The vessel has been outfitted with an Ampelmann E-type active motion-compensated gangway system and pedestal, as well as a boat landing to perform personnel transfer via crew transfer vessels.
