The contract is scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2015 and will see DeepOcean’s subsea construction vessel Volantis mobilize from current works offshore Malaysia to Australian waters.

“We are extremely pleased to receive this award in Australian waters. This project highlights the requirement for such front-end trenching technology in the region and the demand for expertise found within DeepOcean and the UT-1. We look forward to a successful campaign and growing our presence in Australian waters,” said Tony Stokes, managing director of Asia Pacific & Middle East.
