Published Aug 3, 2015 6:58 PM by The Maritime Executive

The delivery of Arendal Spirit this year marks the addition of a new segment to Teekay Offshore’s offshore logistics portfolio and the world’s first Unit for Maintenance and Safety (UMS) based on Sevan Marine’s innovative cylindrical hull design.

After the successful completion of acceptance tests in June, Arendal Spirit became home for many offshore workers. The DP3 unit is currently in Brazil at Campos Basin on a three-year contract with Petrobras. 

Arendal Spirit provides a stable platform with high uptime and excellent stability and motion characteristics. The vessel contains 500 beds in 248 cabins with en-suite bathrooms, daylight windows, television, internet and telephone connections. Additionally, the unit counts with lounge areas, coffee shop, television and game room, fitness room, dining room, office areas, meeting/conference room and cinema.
