Ulstein’s yno 298, Blue Guardian, a platform supply vessel of the Ulstein PX121 design, has been contracted to support the jack-up rig Maersk Giant in its work on two subsea wells on the Norwegian continental shelf in the North Sea. The contracts with Det Norske Oljeselskap ASA and Repsol Exploration, respectively, have an estimated total duration of four months.

Blue Guardian is in her final phase of construction, and is scheduled for delivery from Ulstein Verft at the turn of this month. The estimated start-up of the contractual work is in mid-July. The vessel is owned by Blue Ship Invest, and will be managed by Remøy Shipping.

The PX121 design has proven to be very attractive in the market, the company said, and all four of the previously delivered vessels to Blue Ship Invest have entered into firm contracts.
