The Norwegian Shipowner and offshore tonnage provider Solstad Offshore ASA (Solstad) has sealed a new five-year deal for the CSV “Normand Ocean” with Italian headquartered Prysmian Powerlink Srl (Prysmian).

Prysmian has contracted the CSV “Normand Ocean” to support the installation of power cable systems on the company’s global projects.

The firm contract will commence during the first or second quarter of 2027 and run until 2032, and if a two-year option is exercised the “Normand Ocean” will support Prysmian until 2034.

With this new signed contract, the CSV “Normand Ocean” joins CSV “Normand Pacific” which already is on a firm contract with Prysmian until the end of 2030.

Lars Peder Solstad, chief executive at Solstad Offshore., said that “We are pleased to announce another long-term contract with Prysmian, which expands our partnership with the company that started back in 2016. Both Normand Ocean and Normand Pacific play important roles in the ongoing energy transition, in which Solstad has a large and growing footprint.”

The CSV “Normand Ocean” was built in 2014 and is an advanced DP2 subsea construction vessel equipped with a 150-ton active heavy compensated subsea crane, which makes the vessel an effective working platform for various demanding offshore activities.

The “Normand Ocean” is owned by Solstad Maritime AS, in which Solstad Offshore ASA holds an ownership share of 27,3 percent.
