Apollo being prepared for first job
14 August 2018
The newbuild vessel Apollo has left Croatia’s Uljanik Shipyard and is heading for the port of Vlissingen, Netherlands. There the vessel will undergo mobilisation for an undisclosed first assignment, says Belgian marine contractor DEME.
The company says the vessel, which comes equipped with 106.8 metre long lattice legs, will mostly be put to work by oil and gas subsidiary EverSea.
One of the first jobs for Apollo will be to dismantle the unmanned Q1 Halfweg platform in the Dutch North Sea.
DEME says the jack-up will bring the platform and its four legs ashore at the end of this year as part of a decommissioning gig for Petrogas E&P Netherlands BV.
Uljanik Shipyard officially delivered Apollo to GeoSea earlier this month.
