Dolphin Exercises Option to Charter 3D Seismic Vessel Sanco Sword

Dolphin has exercised the option and signed a long term time-charter on the 3D seismic vessel Sanco Sword from Sanco Shipping AS, for an initial 5 year firm period with options to extend for additional 3 times 2 years.

The Vessel is the second purpose built high capacity 3D seismic vessel to be delivered from Kleven Maritime’s Myklebust Yard in Norway to Sanco Shipping. She is the sister ship of Sanco Swift, also chartered by Dolphin. Sanco Sword is scheduled to be delivered from the yard in April 2014.

Atle Jacobsen, CEO commented, “Sanco Sword will be the fourth high capacity 3D seismic vessel to be operated by Dolphin and position us with one of the most modern and efficient fleets in the industry. The delivery timing of the vessel is ideal during a further strengthening of the marine seismic market”

Ivar Slettevoll, Managing Director Sanco Shipping commented, “we are pleased to further expand our good business relationship with Dolphin Group. The Sanco Sword will, as her sister ship Sanco Swift, be built by Kleven Maritime yard in Norway. The vessel is characterised by high transit speed, and industry leading bollard pull which will enable large and wide tow configurations. Furthermore, the vessel will be equipped with the newest engine technology that will provide safe and fuel efficient operations for the charterer. The Sanco Sword is fully financed and we look forward to start the building project with Kleven Maritime’s Myklebust Yard”

Ferries Asia Summit

Propelling Regional Waterway Connectivity & Fleet-wide Operational Excellence

Ferry travel is in the limelight. The potential for driving tourism growth is immense – and for archipelago nations battling with urban congestion, ferry services pose a clean, efficient alternative in everyday public transport. But high-profile ferry accidents have brought ever greater attention to safety regulations for Asia’s maritime travel industry.

Amid these circumstances, how can vessel operators cope with ever-tightening safety requirements, while making the right decisions at the right time to capture rising demand? What are the smartest ways to improve service reliability and fleet quality, that maximize operating and capital spend? What are the industry’s best-practices for sustainable growth, and how can they be achieved?

Play your part! Join us at the Ferries Asia Summit 2017 to push forward the regional debate on making Asia’s ferry industry more progressive, safe, and commercially sustainable. Bringing together fast-ferry, RO-RO and ROPAX vessel owners along with international and domestic maritime regulators, classification agencies, shipbuilders and naval architects, this event connects the entire value chain for a meaningful holistic debate on ferry operations excellence in Asia.

WHAT’S ON THE AGENDA THIS YEAR?

Comprehensive debates on addressing the complexity of ferry safety in Asia: Is vessel age truly the greatest concern? How significant are other factors, and how can they be addressed?

Pathways to change through greater public-private collaboration

Contrasting viewpoints on the most effective ways to enhance operational stability & passenger management
