Prosafe CEO Jesper Kragh Andresen said: “Prosafe regard this contract award as a significant milestone and we are ready to deliver the highest quality of vessel and service.
“Statoil is a key client and this was a very important contract for the company to win and we anticipate that this will position the Safe Zephyrus well for any additional work at the Johan Sverdrup development.”
Prosafe expects that the contract will provide a longevity of operations for the Safe Zephyrus in addition to generating a firm cash flow in the market.
Statoil selected Prosafe on the basis of its safe operations, the competence of Safe Zephyrus and the commercial proposal offered.
