Today, at 4PM, Oceanteam ASA's second DP2 vessel, the CSV North Ocean 102 will be christened. The ceremony will take place in Vigo, Spain, where the vessel was constructed by Metalships. In January 2009, this second vessel in Oceanteam's 100 series will start working on a project by project basis for the Mexican Offshore Construction and IMR Company CICSA.
The ship's godmother, Rocio Magallanes, wife of Eduardo Arana CICSA's Commercial Director, will christen the vessel 'North Ocean 102'.
The ship is 137 meter in length and has a 27 meter beam. When delivered she will be fitted with two 100ton cranes, a large moon pool and will be able to accommodate a crew of up to 199.
Like the Bourbon Ocean 101, the North Ocean 102 has been constructed at Metalships in Vigo, Spain.
In the course of 2009 the North Ocean 103 will follow.
