The contract will be executed using Eidesvik Offshore's newbuild TBN Viking Neptun, equipped with Reach ROVs and manned by Eidesvik marine personnel and Reach ROV personnel and engineers.
TBN Viking Neptun is a state of the art vessel, and represents the largest investment Eidesvik has done in the subsea segment. The vessel is well positioned for future environmental requirements in vulnerable areas like the Arctic, through high focus on environmental friendly solutions in the development process of the vessel.

This is a testament to our ambition of finding solutions for our clients combining the right assets, the right equipment, and all engineered together by our highly competent staff."
"This is a historic milestone for Eidesvik, and we are proud that Technip, a world leader in project management, engineering and construction for the energy industry, has showed us such trust. This is consolidating the business cooperation between our companies", says Jan Fredrik Meling, CEO in Eidesvik.
