Prosafe has signed a contract extension with Petrobras Netherlands for the provision of the Safe Notos semi-submersible vessel for safety and maintenance support offshore Brazil.
The original three years and 222-day firm period was due to complete in July 2020, but the extension will result in operations through to mid-November 2021. The contract extension allows for up to 30 days for 5-yearly class renewal inspections.
Total value of the contract amendment including the extension is approximately USD 28.7 million.
The Safe Notos, a technologically advanced and efficient Dynamically Positioned (DP3), harsh environment semi-submersible safety and maintenance support vessel, can accommodate up to 500 persons with extensive recreation facilities. In addition with a large capacity open deck area and telescopic gangway, the Safe Notos provides Petrobras with 300 tonne lift capability.
