James Fisher tackles supply chain challenges with seasonal charter agreement for multipurpose service vessel
On 10 March 2022 James Fisher, a leading provider of marine solutions and specialised engineering services, announced a seasonal charter agreement for Go Marine Group’s Multi-purpose Service Vessel, Go Electra, to tackle industry challenges head on.
The agreement will see the boat used throughout the remainder of 2022, by its marine group companies James Fisher Renewables and James Fisher Subtech.
With an established North Sea operating record, Go Electra will be mobilised in and around UK waters, on unexploded ordnance identification, IMR activities and air diving projects.
The long-standing agreement will see quicker response times and tailored health and safety standards implemented, as well as stabilised and reliable day rates for customers.
In addition, there will be an increase in operational uptime, with a consistent crew and shortened mobilisation and demobilisation times between projects resulting in boosted productivity and sustainability due to fewer overall transits to shore.
Putting sustainability and efficiency at the forefront of decision making, James Fisher selected the Go Electra following an extensive vessel research and evaluation process.
Go Electra was built in 2011, measures 80m in length, and DP2 capabilities, with capacity for 66 crew and passengers.
Go Electra will be mobilised in and around UK waters, largely on unexploded ordnance identification with remotely operated vehicles (ROV), IMR activities and air diving projects, core services for both James Fisher Renewables and James Fisher Subtech.
The vessel will be configured with a fully integrated, hanger deployed WROV and Observation Class ROV and the added flexibility of switching between a 3rd ROV and Air Diving Spread.
The charter will provide JF Renewables and James Fisher Subtech customers with increased security and stability in operation, allowing for increased productivity and the acceleration of projects that will support the industry’s growth through a hastening energy transition.
