Swedish contractor Floatel International has received a new extension from Equinor for its accommodation unit Floatel Superior at the Martin Linge Field Development in Norway’s North Sea.

The onshore operational support and supervision company said in a press release that Floatel Superior started its charter at Equinor’s Martin Linge project at the end of July 2018. The contract has now been extended with four months until the end of March 2020.

Floatel also said that six monthly options remain in place for the Floatel Superior.

Prior to her contract with Equinor, Floatel Superior worked for Total in the Culzean field in the North Sea in the UK.

Floatel Superior is a semi-submersible accommodation and construction support vessel (floatel) designed for worldwide operation with emphasis on some of the harshest environmental conditions in the world, such as the Northern North Sea.

The vessel was built by Keppel FELS Shipyard in Singapore and delivered in 2010.
