Mermaid Maritime Public Company Limited announces that Mermaid Subsea Services (International) Ltd. (“MSSI”) has entered into a two-year charter-in contract for the DP2 Diving Support Construction Vessel (“DSCV”) ‘Van Gogh’ to support Mermaid Subsea Services (International) Ltd., which comes on the back of secured work and anticipated continual demand in worldwide operations for essential subsea services.

The vessel has been delivered to MSSI.

The DSCV ‘Van Gogh’ comes with built-in saturation diving and air diving system, 120 beds, and a 150-ton crane. The vessel will undertake inspection, repairs, and maintenance contracts as well as perform saturation diving in support of construction interventions, and ongoing field maintenance and call out repair. MSSI has chartered-in this DSCV and will deploy her to support its various subsea projects commencing in February 2022.

The Contract also comes with two one-year extension options, which, if exercised, would extend the charter period through to February 2026. Mermaid’s subsidiary, Mermaid Subsea Services (Thailand) Ltd., has already secured subsea contracts worth circa USD 12 million, that will utilize this DSCV for a scheduled duration of approximately 120 days, expected to end in June 2022. In the interim, Mermaid is actively bidding more work in the Asia Pacific.
