Troms Offshore Supply has received its new build no 773 at STX Søviknes shipyard in Norway. The ship will be given the name MV Troms Sirius in a naming ceremony to be arranged in Stavanger on Thursday 31st May.

Troms Sirius is a Clean Design diesel electric PSV (Platform Supply Vessel) with a deck area of 1.020m2 and consequently one of the largest PSV ships operating in the North Sea. Engines and propulsion in combination with advanced catalyst technologies ensure low fuel consumption, efficient operations and reduced emissions to air.

MV Troms Sirius is a STX PSV 09 design similar to one of the other ships in the Company’s fleet, MV Troms Capella, while the other ships owned by Troms Offshore have a VS 485 CD design. The ship will fly the Norwegian NOR flag with a crew of 28 split on two shifts. MV Troms Sirius will primarily be positioned for operations in the North Sea and in the Barents Sea.

Troms Offshore operates a fleet comprising 11 ships from its home port in Tromsø in Northern Norway. The Company owns 4 large Clean Design PSVs with a deck area in excess of 1.000 m2 and a new build Clean Design PSV with a deck area of 850 m2. The Company is in the process of expanding its fleet of large, environmentally friendly ships for operations in the North Sea and in arctic waters. Based on its’ experience and competence from operating in challenging arctic waters, Troms Offshore focuses on expanding its position as a leading provider of offshore supply services in Northern Norway and in arctic areas. Four of the Company’s ships are registered with the Norwegian NOR flag, and a majority of the Company’s officers and crew are recruited from Northern Norway.

TOC Americas

TOC (The Terminal Operations Conference) has long been considered best in class by container terminal operators and their suppliers. Over time, TOC has evolved and whilst they continue to deliver the highest quality technical content in line with their heritage, they also recognise that they must now hear from stakeholders higher up the cargo chain. Therefore, there are now two distinct elements to the event:

The exhibition is a showcase for port & terminal technology and operations plus TECH TOC, the free to attend technical conference aimed at terminal operators and their suppliers. Many suppliers come together to showcase cutting edge solutions to their clients, the terminal operators and ports.

More recently, the events now placed a new focus on the container supply chain making them the premier business and networking event for the stakeholders, including shippers, carriers and 3pl’s as well as the global operators and port authorities. This conversation takes place in the more recently created Container Supply Chain Conference.
