General – Charter
DeepOcean has entered into a firm charter agreement with Hornbeck Offshore for the HOS Warland, a multi-purpose service vessel supporting the US Gulf of Mexico.
The HOS Warland will extend DeepOcean’s capabilities in the larger construction-end of the market through higher specification equipment installed onboard the vessel.
The vessel has been part of DeepOcean’s offering for some time, but will now be secured through a time charter. This will enable DeepOcean to provide even better support to the fast paced requirements of the IMR market, and to construction and installation projects that are managed, engineered and executed by DeepOcean’s in-house team.
“The HOS Warland in combination with DeepOcean’s subsea engineering, equipment and expertise will enable us to bundle our services for customers in a highly cost efficient way. The versatile spread will be well suited for IMR and installation projects through utilizing its 250 ton crane and dual work-class ROV set-up. The vessel will also serve as a platform to deploy further DeepOcean service lines in the future,” says Tony Stokes, DeepOcean’s President – Americas.
The vessel is a DP2 310ES Multi-Purpose Service Vessel which compliments the suite of DeepOcean’s subsea services. She is owned and operated by Hornbeck Offshore.
