挪威海工船东Solstad Offshore公司与伊萨卡能源（Ithaca Energy）公司签订了一份关于其一艘船舶在北海作业的合同。
Solstad Offshore公司周五宣布，其平台供应船（platform supply vessel ，简称PSV）“Far Symphony”号与伊萨卡能源公司签订了一份定期合同。该合同期限为一年，且具有延长一年的期权，按计划于2021年11月开始生效。
该合同到期后，船东于2017年与Fairfield Betula公司签订了为期一年在英国大陆架上作业的合同。Fairfield Betula公司于2018年行使了合同延长权，延长了“Far Symphony”号平台供应船现有合同的使用期限。
此外，Solstad公司一直在对外出售船队，同时也在过去几个月中赢得了新的船舶交易。最近，Solstad公司为其“Normand Server”号平台供应船赢得了一份续约合同，同时也为其中型施工支持船（medium-sized construction support vessels ，简称CSV）赢得了两份长期合同。
Ithaca Energy hires Solstad vessel for North Sea ops
Norwegian offshore vessel owner Solstad Offshore has inked a contract for one of its vessels with Ithaca Energy for operations in the North Sea.
Solstad Offshore announced on Friday that its platform supply vessel (PSV) Far Symphony has been awarded a term contract by Ithaca Energy. The contract is for a period of one year firm, with further extension options up to one year. It is scheduled to start in November 2021.
Based on the terms of the contract, the vessel will be supporting Ithaca’s UK North Sea operations. The 2003-built vessel is of a P105 Design.
For the past few years, this vessel carried out operations in the North Sea and the UK Continental Shelf. In 2011, the PSV Far Symphony was awarded a six-year contract by ConocoPhillips Skandinavia for operations in the North Sea.
Upon the completion of this contract, the vessel owner signed a one-year contract with Fairfield Betula in 2017 for operations on the UKCS. Fairfield Betula exercised its extension option to extend its existing contract for the PSV Far Symphony in 2018.
Furthermore, Solstad has been selling off its fleet, while also winning new deals for its vessels in the last few months. Recently, Solstad won a contract extension for its PSV Normand Server along with two-term contracts for its medium-sized construction support vessels (CSVs).
In addition, the company completed the sale of two vessels in less than a week. The first vessel was sold last week, while the second sale was completed a couple of days ago.
