Accommodation Vessels

As the Finnmarken is about to leave Australia, Prosafe has announced that "it has been awarded a 150-day contract using the Safe Astoria for accommodation support at the Woodside operated North West Shelf Project's North Rankin Redevelopment Project, offshore Western Australia. On site operations are planned to commence between April and May 2012. In addition, Prosafe has granted Woodside two additional 30-day options. Total value of the contract for the firm period is about USD 34.7 million."

The Safe Astoria has previously been engaged in the Bass Strait, with a limited number of AMOU members on board and the rest of the crew were AWU members.
