GloMar Shipmanagement B.V. is proud to announce the procurement of the FUGRO COMMANDER which is a Dynamically Positioned (DP) shallow draft geotechnical vessel. She will be renamed GLOMAR VANTAGE. Due to the growth of the GloMar Subsea division and the ability to perform Diving and ROV operations with this vessel, GloMar Shipmanagement B.V decided to purchase the FUGRO COMMANDER.


The vessel will be converted into a DSV with an on board Seaeye Tiger ROV and two diving LARS systems. Being able to perform its primary diving / ROV operations enables GloMar Subsea to work on a large variety of projects.


The GLOMAR VANTAGE is equipped with Dynamic Positioning (DPI) which was refurbished in 2012. Furthermore she has a 4 point mooring system. Her dimensions are 57 x 12 mtr and has a summer draught of 3.5 mtr which makes her capable for shallow water operations. She can accommodate 28 pax and is Multi-Purpose designed for our diving and ROV services. To maximise efficiency, she has a 5T @ 12 mtr crane and a moonpool of 3.8 x 3.8 mtr with a 18T/38T twin line heave compensated winch.


GloMar Shipmanagement B.V. CCO Mark van der Star commented, “The GLOMAR VANTAGE is a good fit in our fleet to expand our Subsea Diving and ROV services all over the world. We are in discussion with Fugro to mutually offer the vessel back to the market as Geotechnical vessel. Furthermore we will actively promote her in the renewable and Oil & Gas industry. We strive to exceed our services to provide more value, based on today’s principle of supply and demand.”
