Bibby Marine Services are delighted to announce they have signed a contact with Total E&P Netherland to charter the new Damen designed and built 'Walk to Work'(W2W) Service Operation Vessel Bibby WaveMaster1 from April 2018 through to October 2018 with options to extend up to 3 years.

Total made a conscious decision to explore and utilise the innovation and efficiencies developed for the Offshore Wind market and use them in the Oil & Gas market. The comfort, logistics flows and 'access certainty' of Bibby WaveMaster 1 were key influencers in their decision. A team from Total inspected the vessel at the shipyard and were impressed by the quality and features in addition to the well thought out workflows.

Total will use Bibby WaveMaster 1 to replace jack ups and helicopters and provide W2W access to gas platforms in the southern North Sea. The vessel will provide accommodation for up to 90 pax including crew.
