The company has been at the forefront of Platform Supply Vessel (PSV) design and operation since this type of vessel first came into service. From 1978 to the present, the company’s PSVs have been employed by several oil majors to service their installations in the North Sea. The PSVs have also operated in support of major subsea pipe laying projects in the North Sea, Mediterranean and in the Australia/East Timor Sea.
The company rebuilt one of the PSV’s into a Subsea vessel, and thereby a new era of the company’s history started. Today Østensjø Rederi AS has 3 subsea Vessel in its fleet and 2 multi purpose vessels.
Østensjø Rederi AS is now involved in many areas within subsea support including ROV/survey, cable lay, trenching, heavy lift, removal operations and module handling. With the delivery of Edda Fauna the company extended its operations to include the inspection, maintenance and repair of subsea installations.
