December 15, 2014 – Rodi Marine Service has signed a contract with Swiftships to build two additional 175 Foot DP-2 Fast Supply Vessels (FSVs) in support of its continued expansion into the oil and gas industry. The two additional vessels will be an extension of the two-boat order made by Rodi Marine in 2013.
Earlier this year Swiftships delivered Rodi Marine’s first new build; a 175 Ft DP-2 FSV dubbed the Riley Claire. The Riley Claire was part of a two-boat order in which the second vessel is scheduled to be delivered by January 2015. The four FSVs will add to Rodi’s existing fleet, providing expanded capabilities in deep water operations. The two new vessels are scheduled to be ready for operation by early to mid 2016.
