Oceaneering upgrades DSV fleet for 2011Two additional U.S. flagged Oceaneering Dive Support Vessels (DSVs) are scheduled to join the company's Gulf of Mexico fleet during the first quarter of 2011.

The new-build Ocean Project is a state-of-the-art DSV outfitted to perform subsea inspection, repair and maintenance (IRM) services and to support construction operations. The 200 foot by 46 foot vessel will replace a vessel of the same name, built in 1972. The new vessel features built-in below deck equipment, a 4-point mooring system and 3,000 ft² of clear deck space.

The Ocean Patriot is a renamed 240-ft, DP-2 MSV built in 2002 that is undergoing upgrades to permanently install a 12-man SAT diving system and telecommunications, video and survey equipment. The vessel features a 40-T crane, 4,500 ft² of clear project deck and a baffled moonpool.
