Ship owners – O.LOG Shipping ApS
Our ship owning company O.LOG Shipping ApS was founded in the spring 2012, at the same time as we bought the research vessel M/S SOELOEVEN.
As we took over the M/S SOELOEVEN we updated the vessel with amongst other equipment, an azimuth, a marine crane, a new high pressure hydraulic system, extra generator, mast for clients equipment, turnable mounting for vertical radar for bird observations, and an extra survey room.
Since May 2014 and until spring 2015 the M/S SOELOEVEN were on charter to a German energy company RWE, during the construction of the offshore wind farm Nordsee Ost, in the waters North of the island Helgoland.
The vessel has been conducting environmental investigations at the construction site, laying out "Wireless Detection Buoys" (WDS buoys), taking bottom samples, other forms of buoy handling, and conducting test fishery.
The vessel has been in dock for upgrades and renewal of certificates in the period May-June 2014.
Since the end of June 2014 the vessel has been conducting guard duties in the Danish and British North Sea, and has conducted buoy work, various survey tasks and bottom sampling in the German Bight as well as in the Baltic Sea.
If You are interested in chartering the M/S Søløven for short or long term tasks, please contact FOGA ApS and we will aid you.
The M/S SOELOEVEN is a very flexible vessel suitable as guard-, buoy-, diving- and survey vessel.
