Maersk Supply Service, headquartered in Denmark, has secured a deal with Shell to utilize its subsea support vessel, the Maersk Achiever.

Constructed in 2003, the vessel is slated for operations at the Penguins oil and gas field located in the UK North Sea.

Set to commence in April, the specifics of the contract's value remain confidential, with broker estimates suggesting a duration of 40 to 80 days, options included.

At the end of the previous year, the Maersk Achiever was engaged by Shell to assist the Stena Don semisubmersible rig. Following that, the vessel, measuring 90.3 meters in length and serving multiple purposes, was employed by the Danish cabling company NKT.
