PLSV Skandi Olinda of the Dofcon consortium (TechnipFMC / DOF) was launched this week in Rio de Janeiro. Built at the Vard Promar Shipyard in Pernambuco, the vessel, which specializes in handling underwater flexible lines, will provide Petrobras with services for eight years.
With 300 t of top tension capacity, Skandi Olinda is the fourth PLSV of Dofcon chartered by the oil company, alongside the Skandi Recife, Açu and Búzios.
The Petrobras fleet is also composed of another 12 PLSVs, operated by Sapura (six vessels), Subsea 7 (four) and the TechnipFMC-Odebrecht consortium (two).
In 2019, the contracts for four vessels are expected to be completed: Sapura Diamante and Topázio, by Sapura, and the Atlantic Top Coral and Star of the Sea (TechnipFMC-Odebrecht).
