Dockwise Vanguard Books Second Journey

Friday, October 14, 2011

Dockwise announced its second project for the new-build vessel Dockwise Vanguard. Directly following the transportation of the Jack & St. Malo platform to the Gulf of Mexico in 2013, the Dockwise Vanguard will return to Korea to load and transport the Goliat floating, production, storage and offloading vessel [FPSO] to northern Norway.
The investment decision for the construction of the Dockwise Vanguard has facilitated technical optimization of the production platform, whereby the change offers benefits to the Goliat project with respect to transit time and transportation flexibility. The financial result from this contract and the hereby announced change order confirms the earlier made financial prognosis for the vessel in its first year of operation. Aiming at further assignments for this period Dockwise continues to strive for enhanced revenues compared to its initial plan.
The Goliat FPSO will be operated by Eni for oil production of the Goliat field located offshore Northern Norway in sub-arctic conditions. The platform is designed as a fully integrated and enclosed winterized floating production platform (FPSO).
André Goedée, Chief Executive Officer, Dockwise Ltd, said: "The Vanguard is already adding unique capacity and new flexibility to the Dockwise fleet. This is of particular value for clients with the most challenging assignments. In case of today's announcement we created an opportunity for the client to optimize the project execution schedule with a flexible and robust solution for the transportation of the Goliat FPSO from Korea to Europe. We consider this another strong endorsement of Dockwise's decision to invest in a major new-build asset ahead of the surge in demand for Transport & Installation projects in the next decade."
