Østensjø Rederi and DeepOcean have extended a longstanding relationship around the hybrid-powered construction vessel ‘Edda Freya’.
Kristian Vea, CEO Østensjø Rederi, said: “We are pleased that we have come to an agreement with DeepOcean for Edda Freya, a vessel that was designed together with and has been on contract with DeepOcean since delivery in 2016. We are satisfied with the terms and our long and solid relationship with DeepOcean.”
Edda Freya is suited for operations worldwide, designed by Salt Ship Design with a focus on cable laying operations, offshore constructions and advanced maintenance and repair operations. She was built by Kleven Verft in Ulsteinvik, Norway. Edda Freya is one of three Østensjø Rederi-vessels on contract with DeepOcean.
Øyvind Mikaelsen, CEO DeepOcean, said: “The new contract will commence on January 1, 2023, for a 2-year charter with options for further extensions and rely on the long term relationship that DeepOcean and Østensjø Rederi have built based on our strong collaboration over the years. We look forward to working together in bringing sustainable solutions with a promising outlook for the offshore subsea market.”
The fixed duration of the charter is two years with options for further extensions.
