Fleet utilization for Q1 2023 was 28.6 percent. This compares to 68.1 percent in Q1 2022 and 56.1 percent in Q4 2022. Safe Zephyrus is in Brazil and final preparations are ongoing for contract commencement with Petrobras. Prosafe expects that the 650-day contract will commence as planned on 1 May 2023.
Safe Eurus started its four-year contract with Petrobras on 17 February 2023 following directly from the expiry of the previous contract. Safe Eurus will be off hire for approximately 35 days in Q1 2024 to complete Petrobras compliance works, hull cleaning and SPS.
Safe Notos continued operations with Petrobras during Q1 2023. Safe Notos is expected to be off hire for approximately 30 days in mid-May 2023 for Petrobras contract compliance works and hull cleaning.
Safe Concordia is in Curaçao where ramp-up and mobilization works are ongoing for the upcoming contract in the US Gulf of Mexico. The Concordia upgrade and contract compliance works are challenged by the condition of the vessel, requirements for operation in the US GoM and the current high inflationary environment. The commencement window is now 1 August through 15 September 2023. A standby rate of USD 28,000 per day has been agreed for the period from 1 August until completion of mobilisation.
