Ideally suited to extended duration operations, company says.
Stabbert Maritime has added a multi-purpose construction vessel to its fleet.
The Ocean Intrepid barge is 381 feet in length, features DP-2 dynamic positioning, a 400T motion compensated crane, a 978 sq ft moonpool and the ability to house over 100 people working offshore for an extended period of time.
The vessel provides a large working platform for a broad range of offshore operations, and Stabbert Maritime describes it as "an extremely cost effective work platform for extended duration offshore operations."

A lack of reliable riserless systems is one of several issues holding back higher cost-efficiency in the decommissioning sector, industry sources have told DecomWorld.
