Glomar Offshore was awarded with support contract in UK sector of North Sea. The contact is for 3 years with options for another 3 years extension. The financial details were not revealed, but for the job will be employed the emergency response and rescue vessel Glomar Pride. The new offshore contact will improve employment of the company’s fleet and will help for further growth of the company in the sector. The extension of the company’s operations in UK sector of North Sea is key factor for its growth and expansion of the market share outside of the traditional Dutch market.
“As the oil and gas drilling activity in the Netherlands diminished we have transferred our NOGEPA stand-by vessels into UK oil and gas (UKOG) ERRVs (emergency response and rescue vessels)”, said the CCO of Glomar, Mark van der Star. “As a result of that and a winning tender strategy Glomar has secured one three-year charter with three years of options”, added he.
The emergency response and rescue vessel Glomar Pride (IMO: 9608764) has overall length of 42.00 m, moulded beam of 10.00 m and maximum draft of 4.00 m. The deadweight of the vessel is 893 DWT and the gross tonnage is 625 GRT. The offshore supply vessel vessel Glomar Pride was built in 2011 by Nauta Shiprepair Yard in Gdynia, Poland.
Glomar Offshore operates a diverse fleet of purpose built offshore support vessels. The company is the leading provider of Safety Standby Vessels (SVV’s) to the Dutch offshore Oil & Gas sector, as well as Emergency Response and Rescue Vessels (ERRVS’s) in the UK sector.
