Comfort at Sea, the joint venture between Blue Water Shipping A/S, Denmark and ISP, Miami, has arranged a charter of the Sea Voyager to EBC-IGLU, s.e.n.c., Toronto, as an accommodation vessel for port construction in Deception Bay, Canada. The vessel will be delivered during the first week of July; will be on charter for a period of 100-120 days, and used to house approximately 160 construction workers, working on a two-shift schedule due to the time constraint of the job which has to be completed before Deception Bay closes because of ice, around the end of October.
“Comfort at Sea has had a fantastic start as this joint venture was only formed a few months ago and one month ago we announced that the Sea Spirit was chartered to Siemens, and can now announce that the Sea Voyager has been chartered to Canada. Signing two charter contracts within a few months of forming the joint venture is very satisfactory. There are a number of other contracts, as well longer term contracts being negotiated, and we are looking forward to the expanded relationship between Blue Water Shipping A/S and ISP in the Comfort at Sea joint venture”, stated Kurt Skov, Blue Water Shipping A/S, Esbjerg.
ISP, Inc. will continue the technical management of the vessel, and ISP Leisure will provide the hotel services during this charter period.
At this time it is the plan that after the charter, the Sea Voyager will be positioned to Northern Europe for a winter layup, where it will then be available for charters for next summer season.
