Eidesvik secures contract extension for LNG-powered PSV

Norway’s Eidesvik Offshore has secured a contract extension from German oil and gas company Wintershall Dea for one of its LNG-powered PSVs.

The dual-fueled 2013-built, Viking Princess, will start the new charter contract with Wintershall Dea in July 2023, in direct continuation of the current contract, according to a statement by Eidesvik.

The new contract is an option from the previous deal and will last until January 2024.

Eidesvik did not provide any additional information regarding the charter.

In October last year, Wintershall Dea declared an option from the previous charter contract to extend the contract for the LNG-powered vessel until July 2023.

The LNG-powered Viking Princess was the world’s first offshore vessel with a battery hybrid energy storage solution replacing a traditional generator, Eidesvik claims.

The 90 meters long vessel also received a shore power system in November 2021.

Wintershall Dea previously said that the vessel supports its effort to reduce emissions from its activities on the Norwegian Continental shelf.
