A multipurpose offshore support vessel, VOS Sweet, was recently chartered from Vroon Offshore Services through a deal facilitated by Clarksons, according to Modus, a leading offshore contractor providing life-of-field support using Smart Subsea Services.
The vessel, chartered to fulfil a contract award for pipeline-inspection work in the Dutch North Sea sector, will be mobilised from the Modus Middlesbrough Marine Base on 30 June. The contract will involve Modus’ skilled and dedicated team, offering full survey and inspection vessel capability supported by an experienced onshore team. Upon completion of the firm offshore contract, Modus will have some availability circa mid-July. Installed will be a Modus hybrid AUV (HAUV) representing the latest in autonomous technology, full survey spread for pipeline/geophysical survey and ROV capability. The spread will enable fast, accurate data acquisition of pipelines, route surveys and target identification.
VOS Sweet is a cost effective, modern DP2 subsea-support vessel with a low fuel consumption, perfectly suited for subsea survey (pipeline-, UXO- and route survey) and inspection while supporting equipment such as boulder removal tools.
Mike Arnold, Chief Commercial Officer at Modus says “The charter of VOS Sweet means we can continue to build on our in-house expertise and offer a flexible, high-quality and reliable service that reaffirms our continuing commitment to the energy industry for the provision of high tech, smart solutions. With it, additional work streams and a new client base will be opened to us”.
