DOF Subsea and vessel builder, ST Marine, joined together to host the official naming ceremony for the Skandi Singapore on 11th of June 2011. Named after her place of build, the high specification, dive support vessel is the first of the fleet to be designed, built and outfitted for work in the Asia Pacific Region.
DOF Subsea has undertaken a highly targeted investment programme to prepare for the forecast trend of rapid expansion and development in the Asia Pacific offshore oil and gas market. The arrival of the Skandi Singapore strengthens DOF Subsea's operational capability. The vessel is ideally matched to construction programs as well as large IRM operations and built to match and support the wider operational needs of clients.
Designed for safe and efficient offshore operations the Skandi Singapore is a DNV classed, AKER 06 design DSV. With a 900 m2 main deck area, operating capabilities include a 140 t crane, two in-built Triton XLX work class ROVs and an 18 man saturation diving system.
DSV Skandi Singapore will set a new benchmark for reliability, safety and comfort in the region.
