SIMON MOKSTER BAGS STATOIL EMERGENCY RESPONSE CONTRACTS
Statoil awards Simon Mokster Shipping AS contracts for three emergency response and rescue vessels (ERRV), and Havila Shipping ASA for one ERRV. The contacts have a total value, included options, of NOK 2.7 billion. The vessels will be part of Statoil’s area-wide emergency response on the Norwegian continental shelf (NCS). The emergency response vessels play an important role in addressing government authorities’ and the company’s own requirements for rescue, hospital, fire-fighting, emergency towing and oil spill preparedness.
The contracts will run for seven years, with five one-year extension options.
The three vessels from Simon Møkster Shipping are Stril Poseidon, Stril Merkur and Stril Herkules. Havila Shipping has been awarded a contract for the vessel Havila Troll. The vessels will cover emergency response services on the NCS together with the 24-hour operations centre at Sandsli. In addition, Statoil has five operative SAR helicopters on the NCS.
