TechnipFMC and DOF has taken delivery of a new pipelayer for the Brazilian market:

PS> 8 year fixed charter in today’s market is rear.

Didn’t DOF just cut a little over half the office / engineering staff?

Offshore Heavy Transport (OHT) has ordered four new HLV from China:


This time fitted with 3000 MT cranes, so not only for transportation.

Are you referring to DOF Subsea USA??
As far as I know they are hiring again in Norway, Scotland, Brasil, Singapore and Australia.
Getting new contracts all over the place:
