Sonsub Contracts New 280ft Vessel

Thursday, February 03, 2005

Sonsub Inc. recently signed a 3 year charter agreement with Otto Candies, LLC for a New Build IMR Construction Vessel. The yet to be named 280ft, Class II DP Vessel includes a 100T tele-knuckle boom crane, a 20’ X 25’ moon pool, accommodations for 66 personnel, and outfitted with one or two 200Hp Innovator ROV systems depending upon the project and client requirements.

The vessel will be the first and only US flagged vessel in the GOM capable of supporting subsea construction projects in addition to standard remote intervention and maintenance tasks. The Moon-pool & crane arrangement will allow safe and stable deployment to the seabed on heavy loads, like manifolds, as well as the lay of umbilical and/or coil tubing lines.

Sonsub anticipates vessel availability starting March 2006 in the Gulf of Mexico.
