James Fisher Subtech, part of James Fisher and Sons plc, has signed its second charter agreement of 2023.

The agreement allows for the exclusive use and operation of the multipurpose offshore vessel Olympic Taurus.

The agreement with Olympic Subsea increases JF Subtech’s vessel availability and its capacity to support additional projects and further cements its commitment to the UK offshore energy industry.

The agreement will see the vessel utilised by both JF Subtech and sister company, James Fisher Renewables (JF Renewables), increasing operational uptime and flexibility at a time when vessel availability across the energy industry is limited.

Olympic Taurus has already been mobilised for work from Montrose Port, Aberdeenshire, and fitted with a work class remotely operated vehicle (WROV), in support of an unexploded ordnance (UXO) identification, survey and disposal campaign in the North Sea.
