Marine Subsea is
apparently a UK based marine organisation
operating at least one subsea intervention
vessel. They seem to have been spawned by the
former TSMarine which I think was supposed to
operate the new XBow well intervention vessel
the Sarah. The Uk company appears to be separate
from the Norwegian company Marine Subsea AS.
Marine Subsea AS claims to own the ship,
although it seems more likely that it is
actually owned by Marine Subsea UK Ltd.
Later news -
January 2011 - the Sarah is lying alongside
somewhere, maybe Montrose, and in in the hands
of the accountants winding up Marine Subsea UK,
or possibly some associated company which may or
may not own the ship. It is up for sale anyway,
so if you fancy it why not place a bid. Offers
apparently in the region of $20,000,000.
Updating this page
in November 2011 it turned out that the Sarah
was bought by DOF Subsea in May 2011. A second
vessel the Katianne was being built at
Ulsteinvik. The company completed it and sold it
to Island Offshore. So it is goodbye to Marine
Subsea UK - this page is now history, but as has
become my habit, it remains just for interest.
