DOF has accepted delivery of AHTS vessel Skandi Iceman from the Vard Soviknes shipyard in Norway. The vessel was constructed utilising the VARD 2 12 design, with her hull built by Vard Tulcea in Romania
Skandi Iceman has been designed for world wide operations, and comes with DNV’s ICE-1B class notation. Amongst other features, she has a low resistance hull shape which is designed for high speed and low fuel consumption, along with good sea and station-keeping performance, excellent manoeuvrability and good stability. The vessel also comes equipped with an ROV hangar with a launch and recovery ROV system.
Skandi Iceman has now entered the North Sea spot market, with DOF securing her first fixture on the same day that she was delivered. The vessel’s first job is with MLS, to move the semi-submersible Leiv Eiriksson in the Barents Sea offshore Norway. This charter could keep her busy for a period of up to 21 days.
