We are pleased to announce Petrobras has awarded DOF two long-term contracts: a Major Contract for the Pipelay Support Vessel (PLSV) Skandi Niterói, and a Very Large Contract for the Anchor Handling Support vessel (AHTS) Skandi Botafogo.

The Brazilian built and flagged PLSV Skandi Niterói is awarded a 3-year firm plus option contract commencing in 2025. The vessel is owned by DOFCON Navegação Ltda., a joint venture between DOF Subsea (50%) and TechnipFMC (50%).

The Brazilian built and flagged AHTS Skandi Botafogo (181t BP), that is currently contracted by Petrobras until 1Q 2025, is awarded a 4-year firm plus 1-year option contract commencing in 2025 in sequence to the current contract. Prior to commencement, the vessel will have a Work Class ROV rated 3,000m installed on board delivering an AHTS 180t BP + ROV for the same tender as Skandi Amazonas and Skandi Rio.

Mons S. Aase, CEO DOF Group ASA, said, “We are thrilled to announce both another award for our PLSV fleet in Brazil and the AHTS contract, which builds backlog into the 2nd quarter of 2029. These long-term awards demonstrate our unique position in Brazil.”
