Beyond an eye-catching form, these high-tech vessels deliver the functionality needed to support production with confidence and efficiency in the world's harshest offshore environments. This remarkable new breed of workboats leverages the latest marine technologies to set new standards for operation – from an ergonomic bridge design and more comfortable crew accommodations to a hull shape that delivers significant fuel savings.
We are in the midst of a circa $500 million building program that will place 12 of the world's most advanced vessels – particularly high specification PSVs – at the vanguard of our fleet.
8 of these new vessels, are designed for the harsh environments of today's emerging fields in the far North Sea and the Arctic Ocean. Additionally, we are building four large PSVs for the US Gulf of Mexico market, which are scheduled to be delivered by Q2 2015. To ensure true purpose-built vessels, we signed agreements with the premier global shipyards that best understand the demanding requirements of both craft and crew in these regions.
