Our acquisition of the Titan 2 expands our opportunity set in the region to meet the most attractive segment of this market, and is part of our ongoing effort to renew our fleet. The Titan 2 is one of the premier liftboats in the region, with a solid record of operations for some of the most prominent customers in West Africa."
