Safe Scandinavia – TSV
Safe Scandinavia is an anchor moored semi-submersible tender support and accommodation vessel with beds for 309 persons (NCS: 159) capable of operating worldwide in harsh conditions.
The upgraded Tender Support Vessel (TSV) capabilities also offer well abandonment, general hook down and cleaning services to support platform decommissioning.
The Safe Scandinavia was built in 1984 at Aker Verdal yard to an Aker H-3.2 design. The vessel was upgraded in 2003 and underwent a 20 year life extension refurbishment in 2014. The Safe Scandinavia completed an extensive and complex conversion to a Tender Support Vessel in 2016.
Equipped with high and low pressure mud pumping, mixing and storage capabilities the vessel has the ability to support wireline, coil tubing and cement services complemented by a high standard of accommodation, offices, workshops and utility services. The Safe Scandinavia can also support rig-less well intervention or can be configured with a modular rig or platform derrick to undertake drilling or workover activities.

In May 2018, Safe Scandinavia successfully completed a multi-year contract with Equinor operating as a TSV for drilling operations at Oseberg Øst in the Norwegian Continental Shelf (NCS). During the contract, Prosafe was responsible for the provision of mud services to the Oseberg Øst installation together with all marine operations of the TSV.
The vessel has since completed an accommodation support vessel contract with Aker BP at the Ula Platform on the NCS. Safe Scandinavia’s recent operational track record can be seen below:
