BREDA, The Netherlands – Dockwise has clinched a second assignment for its newbuild transportation vessel Dockwise Vanguard.

Directly following its delivery of the Jack & St. Malo platform to the Gulf of Mexico in 2013, the vessel will return to South Korea to load and transport the Goliat FPSO to northern Norway.

Eni will operate the FPSO in sub-arctic conditions in the Barents Sea. It is designed as a fully integrated and enclosed winterized FPSO.

André Goedée, CEO of Dockwise, said: "In case of today's announcement we created an opportunity for the client to optimize the project execution schedule with a flexible and robust solution for the transportation of the Goliat FPSO from Korea to Europe.”
