Norway’s Eidesvik Offshore has secured a contract extension for one of its LNG-powered PSVs.
According to a statement by Eidesvik, compatriot energy firm Aker BP has declared an option to extend the contract for the supply vessel Viking Lady.
The contract extension runs from February 2025 in direct continuation of the current contract, extending the firm period to February 2026.
Eidesvik did not provide any additional information regarding the contract.
Built in 2009, Viking Lady is 92.2 meters long and 21 meters wide.
Besides LNG propulsion, the PSV features a battery hybrid system.
Eidesvik announced back in September 2021 a three-year contract with Aker BP for Viking Lady.
The contract was awarded in direct continuation of the previous charter under the companies’ frame agreement.
In addition to this PSV, Eidesvik also has four additional LNG-powered PSVs in its fleet, including the 2012-built, Viking Prince, which also serves Aker BP under a charter deal.
