AXIS OFFSHORE

I have decided to include monohull accommodation vessels in this part of the website. This may not be logical but these new vessels are interesting, in that after some false starts and after some strange combinations of platform ships and portacabins there are now one or two of these unusual vessels about.

This company is a subset of the Danish shippiing company J. Lauritzen. I seem to recollect that in years gone by they ran a substantial merchant fleet, including some Antarctic ships. Perhaps someone could let me know some details. However, today they have a small fleet of offtake tankers and a single accommodation vessel. The details of this vessel follow below. They seem to have a large building programme of conventional vessels of one sort or another.

It turns out that in September 2012 Luaritzen Offshore entered into a 50/50 agreement with HitecVision, a Norway based private equity firm. The new company is called Axis Offshore, and so this page is renamed. The company currently operates the Dan Swift, and has commissioned a semi-submersible accommodation unit, the construction of which commenced in March 2013.

At the 2014 review it can be seen that  the company has two semi-submersible accommodation vessels under construction, one due for deliver early in 2015 and one at the end of that year.

At the time of the 2015 review it seems that the two semi-submersibles are still under construction, although delivery of the Axis Nova is now "flexible". Since they are semi-submersibles they will not be included here when delivered.
