Norwegian offshore vessel owner Eidesvik offshore has this week won contracts for two of its vessels, the Viking Princess and the Viking Neptun.
On Wednesday, Eidesvik said it had secured a deal with the Norwegian oil firm Wintershall Dea Norge for the charter of the Viking Princess platform supply vessel.
The one-year contract is scheduled to start in December 2020. Wintershall Dea Norge will have options to extend the charter further.
On Thursday, the shipowner said it had won a contract with Deme Offshore for the offshore construction vessel Viking Neptun.
The contract is for a fixed period of 84 days, with extension options. The contract is set to begin in November.
Jan Fredrik Meling, CEO & President said the Viking Neptun would work in the offshore wind sector.
He said: “We are very pleased to see that Viking Neptun continues to be attractive in the offshore wind industry and we are looking forward to demonstrating our capabilities to DEME, which is a new client for Eidesvik.”
