Vard Holdings Limited announced that it has secured a contract for the design and construction of one Platform Supply Vessel (PSV) for E.R. Offshore.

The vessel is a multifunctional PSV of VARD 1 08 design with a total length of 81 meters, beam of 18 meters and a cargo deck area of 830 m2. The vessel will be prepared for standby, rescue, firefighting and oil recovery operations. Delivery is scheduled from Vard Vung Tau in Vietnam in 2Q 2016.

E.R. Offshore has also taken over the contract for a sister vessel from Carlotta Offshore via a novation agreement. This vessel is currently under construction at Vard Vung Tau with an expected delivery in 3Q 2015.

The Germany-based E.R. Group consists of different companies founded by Erck Rickmers. It employs a total of about 4,000 people on land and at sea. While E.R. Schiffahrt is a ship owning and ship management company with a fleet of more than 100 container vessels and bulk carriers, E.R. Offshore specializes on offshore vessels. The company was established in 2006 and currently manages a fleet of thirteen Platform Supply Vessels and Anchor Handling Tug Supply Vessels. By contracting these high specification VARD 1 08 vessels, E.R Offshore will be able to expand its fleet and meet the future demand of its customers.

The VARD 1-SERIES comprises a range of Platform Supply Vessels designed by Vard Design in Ålesund, Norway.
