IRISH MAINPORT

IOcean Mainport Holdings was formed in about 2005 as a joint venture between Irish Mainport Holdings and Sartor Shipping of Norway. In 2007 they bought the Havila standby fleet and over time acquired other vessels, and ordered vessels. Sartor Shipping acquired the interest of Irish Mainport Holdings in Ocean Mainport in late 2008. Thereafter Irish Mainport has concentrated on supporting the seismic business, which for those who don't know, now requires support vessels so that the ships towing the cables do not have to stop their work. The support vessels also act as guard ships to keep commercial ships away from the cables.

Since we don't have a precise category for seismic support ships they are included as anchor handlers. That's what most of them used to be. They also own one seismic chase boat which is smaller than the minimum size for inclusion in this record.
