DeepOcean AS has been awarded a significant contract for performing riser replacement and construction work in the North Sea and the Norwegian Sea. That is also good news for Østensjø Rederi’s construction vessel, Edda Freya. 

The firm and optional scope of work comprise complex marine operations for replacement, installation, and recovery of subsea lines and installation work at the Njord, Kristin, Troll C and Åsgard offshore fields. Offshore execution is set for 2019 and 2020.

Edda Freya sets a new standard for efficiency and operability: DeepOcean’s Commercial Director for Subsea Services, Rolf Ivar Sørdal, said: “DeepOcean has throughout 2016 and 2017 successfully performed complex and demanding subsea operations for Statoil and the construction vessel Edda Freya has introduced a new benchmark for efficiency and operability in SURF operations to the market.
