New offshore support vessel sails into Yarmouth port

Red7Marine?s newly-acquired offshore support vessel DP Reel sailed into Great Yarmouth port this week to mark a milestone moment for the rapidly growing company.

The ?�5m investment means the versatile vessel will be available to support work for clients in the renewable energy and oil and gas sectors. It comes less than three years after Red7Marine (R7M) was created by Norfolk-based Anglian Marine Services and Haven Ports (Marine and Constructions Management), of Manningtree, joining forces.

“The acquisition means we have achieved our primary objective to own and operate a fully-mobilised UK-based DPII offshore support vessel,”? said R7M?’s director Mike Jones, at the company?s diving and subsea division base in Lefevre Way, Great Yarmouth.

“?Our intention is to continue raising standards in an industry where we are providing our own specialist services in offshore construction, diving, cable laying, ROV and deep water drilling support. The DP Reel will help significantly in that objective,”? he added.

The 91m x 18 m vessel arrived in Yarmouth from a previous base in Italy.?
