SVS Begins the Year by Expanding Area of Operations

January sees two vessels deploy to completely new areas, increasing our operational capabilities and experience

Specialised Vessel Services owns and operates a range of vessel types in both East and West Africa, including eight of Damen's modern and efficient axebow design.

Amongst them, and shown in the photograph above, is SVS Cochrane, a Damen-built, 55 metre FSIV with DP1 capability. Cochrane deployed at the end of December in response to a short notice requirement and has steamed more than 4,000 nautical miles to begin a new charter off Uruguay in South America.

The fact that she was able to mobilise at such short notice bears testament to our high standards of care and maintenance, and the professionalism of our operations staff in making all necessary arrangements during the Christmas period.

As with all of our fleet, the configuration of cabins, seating and deck layout is modular and adaptable.  Cochrane is currently arranged with cabin accommodation for 17 Charterer’s personnel, along with 240 square metres of deck space and a cargo capacity of 225 tonnes, as well as a davit and FRC.

With a maximum speed of over 20 knots, full ballistic protection and a range of 6,000 Nautical Miles, SVS Cochrane is just one example of our modern vessel fleet, designed and built with safety and security in mind.

Separately, SVS Grenville has just departed Cape Town SA to take a film crew to the remote island of Tristan da Cunha in the South Atlantic, where she will be the floating base for the expedition's diving and filming operations in the weeks ahead.

With other new charters commencing in NIgeria, Ghana and Tanzania this month, the SVS team can reflect on what has been a very busy Christmas and New Year, and look forward to a strong performance in the year to come.

We would be pleased to discuss any potential requirements, whether in East or West Africa or much further afield for our modern and reliable fleet.
