The owners explain that the new ship is suitable for work in both shallow and deep water, ranging from 70 to 3000 meters. For its maiden project, the Norshore Atlantic is contracted in Asian waters. Subsequently, it will be engaged by an oil major on a three year program and is expected to work globally.
