Solstad Offshore’s PSV Normand Skipper has been contracted by Equinor UK for two years plus options.

The contract will start in November or December this year and has an additional two years of options on top of the initial two-year period.

Normand Skipper will join two other vessels in supporting Equinor’s UK operations: Sea Falcon, which was contracted in 2016 and has just had a one-year option exercised, and Sea Frost, contracted in 2017.

Sea Falcon and Sea Frost were both built by Cochin Shipyard in 2013. They measure 88.9 m in length by 19.7 m in breadth with a dwt of 4,419. Normand Skipper was built by Flekkefjord Slipp & Maskinfabrikk in 2005 to a Vik-Sandvik VS4420 design. It measures 92.4 m in length by 22 m in breadth and has a dwt of 6,608 tonnes.
