STX OSV Holdings Limited reports that it has secured new contracts for the design and construction of a series of three Multi Role Vessels (MRV) for DOF ASA. Delivery is scheduled for the second half of 2012.
The new MRV 05 vessels were designed by STX OSV Design in Ålesund, Norway. Based on STX OSV’s new environmentally friendly PSV hull shape, the MRVs have been developed in close cooperation with DOF to fulfill specific roles in supply service, stand-by service, ROV operations and seismic activities.
The hulls will be delivered from the STX OSV shipyard in Romania. Outfitting and commissioning for two of the vessels will take place at STX OSV Aukra, Norway, while the third will be delivered from STX OSV Brattvaag in Norway.
