Dubai headquartered regional offshore marine business, Stanford Marine, says it has secured a 3 year contract with Mexishi  for one of its 87m Platform Supply Vessels, 'Stanford Bateleur', in Mexico.

Before commencing her long term charter in Mexico, Stanford Bateleur will be in Dubai to undergo some project specific modifications, having been working on charter in Malaysia with Haliburton and in Qatar with Maersk Oil, since her delivery in early 2013.

Pemex, the end user, will operate the vessel as an “Injector Vessel” out of the port of Dos Bocas, in the state of Tabasco. The Bateleur will join her smaller sister vessel, the 58m DP1 Stanford Goshawk, which has been working out of the neighboring port of Cd. Del Carmen in Campeche for the last 12 months.

Stanford’s GM, Darren Reeves said, “We are delighted to secure this long term contract for the Bateleur. This represents a significant upping of the stakes in our operations in Mexico and moves us in a direction we are keen to continue. Mexiship will be a solid partner for us and provide assistance with local logistical support; we look forward to working with them. “

Built by Fujian Mawei Shipyard in China, the 87 meter Stanford Bateleur is a DP2 diesel electric Platform Supply Vessel (“PSV”) with a deadweight of 5145 ton, a FiFi 1 notation, open deck area of 1000m2 and spacious accommodation for a maximum compliment of 52 persons onboard.
