After four years of contract work for the Australian government, the Skandi Protector (ex Ocean Protector) will now be headed to work for Chevron Australia on the North West Shelf.

Norwegian ship owner DOF Subsea announced today the signing of a three year Master Services Agreement with Chevron to provide subsea inspection, maintenance and repair (IMR) services utilizing the Skandi Protector.

DOF says following its contract with Australia, the vessel has been refurbished and two new ROV systems installed.

‘This is an extremely important contract for DOF Subsea and will support our continued investment in
Australia. The contract together with the seven plus three year IMR contract won earlier this year will strengthened our market position, engineering and supply chain capabilities in the APAC region and support further growth in the region ‘ said Mons Aase, CEO DOF Subsea

The Skandi Protector was built in 2007 and is a Aker ROV 06-design.
