This platform support vessel is designed to satisfy the general demands of the offshore industry and is the eleventh order of its kind for the Island Offshore fleet.

The new vessel will be delivered from the Vard Brevik yard in Norway in February 2015, and the hull of the vessel will be delivered from Vard Braila in Romania.

Upon delivery it will become the 26th vessel in Island Offshore’s fleet designed by Rolls-Royce.
