            A fine image of ship and weather. It shows off this ship's simple and neat proportions, and she looks reassuringly capable in these foggy conditions.

            Thank you Seagull.

          Is this ship still a part of TFDS (does that still exist?)..... I remember some TFDS vessels within the offshore segment a long time ago.

          Troms Offshore .... is that the former TFDS?

            TFDS resigned from the offshore market and sold its subsidiary TFDS Offshore with five vessels to Solstad Offshore in November 2004. So that was the end of that company.

            As far as I can remember, Troms Offshore was established by some former TFDS employees.
            It's starting to be so long ago, so I do not remember who it was, but one of them was possibly one called Svein Hoel.

            Sorry that´s all I can remember at the moment.

              Now a Tidewater subsidiary, as it says on the side of every one of their vessels. (Tidewater = world's largest offshore vessel owner)

              Troms Offshore was sold to Tidewater back in 2013

              This is a press relase from Troms Offshore back then.
              Tidewater Inc. has through a wholly owned subsidiary entered into an agreement with HitecVision regarding the acquisition of Troms Offshore Supply AS ("Troms Offshore"). The $ 95 million purchase price includes a cash settlement of 150 million dollars and the acquisition of about 245 million dollars in net interest-bearing debt and remaining payments under new construction contracts.

              And this two people bought the rest business.
              In 2004, TFDS sold out the offshore share of the company to Solstad Offshore. Following the sale, TFDS resumed management agreements for six ships and a so-called bareboe agreement for two other vessels. Svein Hoel and Øst Mortvedt bought the rest business from TFDS. Over the past year, they have doubled the number of vessels they have management agreements with and they can show good economic results for the most important boats. Troms Offshore is in good driving.
              This quote is from 2006.
