NORTH SEA SHIPPING

For us North Sea Shipping appeared as if by magic when their vessel, the North Sea Giant appeared in 2012, and it was announced that it was the largest offshore support vessel in the world. Actually it appears that they have been in the shipping business for years and have operated seismic ships since the 1980s. They are a family owned concern and like other Norwegian shipowners have their roots in the fishing business. It appears from their fleet list that they have a number of ships bareboated to other operators. We have not developed a process for dealing this this situation, and so some of the bareboated craft may also appear here. I suppose at the moment it depends on the availability of information. One of the ships, surely only usable for cable laying has been left out.

At the time of the 2014 review it appears that all the previously chartered ships have disappeared, maybe back to their owners, and the company have one ship being built.

Updated 7th October 2014.
