New contract for accommodation vessel Edda Fides
We are very pleased to announce that Edda Accommodation has secured a new contract for Edda Fides with Chevron in Australia, commencing in 2Q 2022.
Edda Fides, currently on charter for Equinor, will provide accommodation and associated facilities for up to 300 people for an upcoming turnaround maintenance event on the Wheatstone offshore gas processing platform, off the coast of Australia.
“Edda Fides worked at Wheatstone for Chevron back in 2017, and we are pleased to be working together with Chevron in Australia again”, says CEO in Edda Accommodation, Kristian Helland Vea. “The accommodation segment has been very challenging since 2017 and we are happy to see that there is more activity in the market and thus an increased need for the type of services that Edda Fides can offer”.
Mobilization for the project will be in direct continuation of the current charter with Equinor.
