Otto Marine Limited has secured charter contracts for its Multiple Purposes offshore Supply Vessel (MPSV), Go Explorer, for a total of US$21.0 million.
Go Explorer will initially be deployed to work in Vietnam followed by Australia working on a major offshore construction project based on the various contractual arrangements.
The MPSV Go Explorer is a 3200 dead weight tons vessel and was built in Otto Marine’s shipyard in 2012. The vessel is Norwegian MT6009L design, dynamic positioning 2 and classed by Norwegian DNV Class. It is clean/comfort design with 66 cabins and is equipped with 2 remotely operated vehicle hangars and a 25 ton offshore crane.
“Australia has a very active oil and gas exploration market with many large scale projects ongoing. There are many opportunities for growth, and we are happy to see that we continue to entrench our presence there. Apart from extending our lead in Australia, the Group is also looking to expand in other markets. We currently have 2 vessels deployed in Vietnam waters now, and are actively trying to build our presence there,” said Mr. Garrick Stanley, Chief Executive Officer.
