DeepOcean and Møkster has entered a longterm agreement for the Stril Server. Møkster is proud to enter this contract with a major operator in the offshore renewables and oil and gas industries. DeepOcean will mobilise the vessel with advanced survey equipment including two WROVs.

The contract will start in 1Q 2023 and is firm until end of 2024 with further options. The contract also opens for installation of battery hybrid solution at next special survey. This will add another vessel to Møkster’s fleet of battery hybrid vessels and further contribute to reduced emissions of greenhouse gases and reduced fuel costs for the customers.
