The company signed a deal with VARD shipyard in Norway to purchase the vessel in late 2018. The vessel is currently undergoing an operational readiness programme and will begin work in the first half of 2019.
The high-quality, cost-effective vessel will primarily service the North Sea diving construction and Inspection, Repair and Maintenance (IRM) markets.
Deep Discoverer has DP3 capabilities, as well as an 18-person twin bell saturation diving system, in-built air diving spread and a 250 Te NOV Hydralift subsea crane.
This acquisition reinforces TechnipFMC’s position in the IRM sector, whilst supporting sustainable project economics for clients.
