General – Subsea Vessel
James Fisher Subtech, has signed a charter agreement with Østensjø Rederi for the exclusive use of its inspection, repair and maintenance (IRM) and construction vessel, Edda Savanah.
The agreement will see the vessel mobilised from April 2023 for work in both the North and Irish Seas on IRM projects for JF Subtech’s customers, utilising remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) and multiple diving methods, two of JF Subtech’s core capabilities.
A highly adaptable vessel that allows for a variety of configurations, the Edda Savanah will be fitted with a James Fisher-owned work class ROV, observation class ROVs and an air dive spread, as well as benefitting from a 150-tonne crane that will allow JF Subtech to deliver a full suite of capabilities.
Ensuring the safety of operations in the face of prevailing North Sea conditions, the Edda Savanah has also been equipped with a daughter craft, ideally located in the centre of the vessel to increase stability during launch and recovery.
The Edda Savanah will be mobilised from April 2023, with potential opportunity for use by other James Fisher group companies during the season.
