Specialised Vessel Services’ (SVS) newest vessel, SVS CORNWALLIS, has recently completed a charter in support of a top-tier seismic exploration company off Bioko Island, Equatorial Guinea. SVS CORNWALLIS commenced her charter in September and underwent comprehensive client-led vetting and an OVID (Offshore Vessel Inspection Database) inspection. Extensive security measures were put on board to enable the vessel to work in the Gulf of Guinea, and SVS deployed a Health and Safety officer to support the project start-up.
