MMT Inks Charter Contract for MV ‘Stril Explorer’

MMT has signed a long term charter contract for M/V Stril Explorer that is operated by Simon Mökster Shipping AS.

MMT has during several projects in the past conducted various survey assignments from this vessel. M/V Stril Explorer is a DP2 offshore vessel with a large open deck and is very suitable for launch and recovery operations, for example with ROVs, AUV and geotechnical equipment. The vessel is equipped with a 60 T offshore crane with a working depth of 1500 m.

Stril Explorer also has one main ROV hangar, suitable for 2 x WROV, launching through hangar port/stb side doors. The vessel is also equipped with a separate deck hangar suitable for 1 x IROV launching through side door. This makes Stril Explorer a very suitable platform for conducting complex subsea operations demanding multiple ROV´s in the water. These subsea services is performed in close cooperation with the company’s experienced partner Reach Subsea AS.

MMT’s sales director Nils Ingvarson comments on the supplement: “We have used Stril Explorer on project basis since 2011. Now when we have full control of a DP2 Vessel we will be able to supply a survey solution that complies with any survey requirement and additional ROV work. Stril Explorer is also intended to be the platform for the survey operations conducted from our new ROV “The surveyor” which will be launched this summer together with Reach Subsea.”

MMT´s long term charter agreement for Stril Explorer is for two years.
