ASTROMARITIMA

Astromaritima is a Brazilian company who own a large number of small platform ships. They  built a UT722L but this appears to have disappeared into the Edison Chouest fleet. Most of their middle aged fleet seem to have been lengthened and re-engined over the years. They own a single diving ship, details of which are not included here.

Checking on this company's assets in 2012 it can be seen that there have been no changes.

At the 2014 review it was seen that two of the older ships had been disposed of, but no changes otherwise.

At the March 2015 review the fleet had decreased by one ship.

Reviewed 4th March 2015.
