Reach Subsea awarded season-long offshore renewables contract

Deep Cygnus subsea support vessel will be upgraded with an NES battery system

Posted on May 10, 2023

The Haugesund, Norway-headquartered group will use subsea support vessel Deep Cygnus for the project, which commenced early May 2023. Reach Subsea has this 2009-built multipurpose vessel on charter for another three years.

This new contract means Deep Cygnus has significant contract coverage for the 2023 season, after which it will go into drydock for maintenance and battery installation Q4 2023.

“The offshore wind market will be a great driver for Reach Subsea in the years to come, and the growth has just started,” said Reach Subsea chief executive Jostein Alendal.

“We are proud to once again have been given the trust from a tier one renewable energy company to deliver high-end services,” he continued.

Deep Cygnus has performed well in the renewables segment for many years, and we are happy for the continuation as part of the Reach Subsea fleet.”

Deep Cygnus has an overall length of 122 m and beam of 22 m. It was operating in Schiedam, near Rotterdam, and Ijmuiden, the Netherlands in early May after operating out of Kingston upon Hull in the UK in April, according to automatic identification system data.

Mr Alendal said long-term charter of this 9,423-gt vessel is part of the company’s “strategy to secure significant high-quality vessel capacity for the coming years for growing demand in our service offerings in both the renewables and oil and gas segments.”

Deep Cygnus’s upgrade with an energy storage system for electrical propulsion is part of Reach Subsea’s ambition to reduce emissions from its operations.

Volstad Maritime called on NES to deliver the battery package and associated control system for battery charging for Deep Cygnus, in connection with a forthcoming vessel upgrade.
