TechnipFMC and DOF Subsea have confirmed that Skandi B˙zios, a pipelay support vessel owned by the joint venture formed between TechnipFMC and DOF, commenced an eight-year charter contract with Petrobras, on 13 April 2017.

Skandi B˙zios is a sistership to Skandi Ašu, which started its charter contract in August 2016.

The two vessels have a flexible pipelay tension capacity of 650 tonnes, enabling the installation of large diameter flexible pipes in the ultra-deepwater Brazilian pre-salt area.

Under the joint venture agreement, TechnipFMC is responsible for the engineering and management of the flexible pipelay, while Norskan SA, a DOF ASA subsidiary, is responsible for the marine operations.
