New Shuttle Spirit on the Horizon
Teekay Offshore’s world-leading shuttle fleet is getting younger – and more modern. On July 27, 2017, Teekay Offshore (TOO) CEO Ingvild Sæther announced the contract signing for two Suezmax-size, DP2 shuttle tanker newbuildings, with options to order up to two additional vessels.
These newbuilding vessels will be constructed based on TOO’s new Shuttle Spirit design which incorporates proven technologies to increase fuel efficiency and reduce emissions, including LNG propulsion technology. Once on the water, they will be the most environmentally friendly shuttle tankers ever built. We will be sharing more about the new Shuttle Spirit vessels over the coming months – stay tuned.
The vessels will deliver in 2019 and 2020 and provide shuttle tanker services in the North Sea in support of our long-term relationship with Statoil.
Exciting times for the Teekay shuttle fleet!
