Two ships are again put into action and 50 seamen get their jobs back after the company Solstad Offshore has been awarded two new supply contracts.

Oil & Gas company ConocoPhillips Scandinavia has awarded two long-term contracts to Solstad Offshore for the supply of ships Normand Server and Normand Supporter.

 “We are very pleased with this. It is essentially pick-up drivers to enable usage of boats than to put them in storage, “says Lars Peder Solstad, Managing Director of Solstad Offshore to Sysla.

 The contracts for both ships have a duration of four years and eight months, and the contracts commence in April and May 2017.

 “We see about 50 jobs as a result of the contract. We have a lot of resources on partial leave, and a part that is laid off is being recruited, says Solstad.
