Noordhoek Offshore has ordered 2 new Sub-Atlantic Mohican ROVs and 3 new Seaeye Falcon ROVs. The decision to order new ROVs is another step within the growth strategy of Noordhoek, which already has two new vessels under construction; a DPII Saturation Diving Support Vessel for delivery Q4 2009 and a dedicated DPII ROV Survey Vessel for delivery Q1 2010.
This order continues Noordhoek´s fleet rejuvenation programme and adds 5 units to Noordhoek's ROV fleet, operating mainly in the inspection, repair and maintenance (IRM) market. The delivery of these new ROVs is scheduled for the second quarter of 2009. These 5 new ROVs will not only provide considerable operational flexibility but also allows the company to respond to the increasing demand from the market.
