Gulf Marine Services (GMS), a provider of self-propelled self-elevating support vessels (SESVs), has been awarded two new long-term contracts in Europe to support wind farm projects for an undisclosed international energy company.
The new contracts, scheduled to commence in the second quarter of 2018, are for two Large Class SESVs, the category reserved for vessels that can operate in water depths of up to 80 metres, have the crane capacity of up to 400 tonnes, and can accommodate up to 300 people.
One contract is for a charter period of 26 months, including options, and the other for a charter period of 15 months, including options.
“We are delighted to have secured these two long-term contracts in Europe. Our ability to provide cost-effective and efficient support solutions tailored to our client’s requirements has been advantageous in winning this work,” Duncan Anderson, Chief Executive Officer of GMS, said.
