Singapore-based Otto Marine say they have secured a long-term charter contract for their AHTS 'Go Pegasus', which was recently deliverd from their own Indonesia shipyard in Batam, Indonesia.

Go Pegasus will soon be mobilized and deployed to the North Sea where she will work for the summer season before commencing its term contract from September 2014. As part of the contract, the client also has options to extend the contract for an undisclosed period.

The new offshore vessel is a Norwegian designed and DNV classed anchor handling tug supply (AHTS) vessel. Equipped with dynamic positioning 2 (DP2) capabilities, the VS491, 24,000 bhp AHTS is particularly suited for work in harsh environments.

“We are very happy to have secured a sizeable contract for Go Pegasus’ maiden project immediately after it joins our fleet. In addition to enhancing our fleet profile, Go Pegasus will aid the Group in strengthening our presence in the North Sea and pave the way for future work in the region. This charter contract is a reflection of the strong interest we are receiving globally for vessels with this tonnage."
