Alcatel acquires Sealion maintenance vessel

Alcatel Submarine Networks (ASN) has acquired Toisa Warrior, a 2011-built DP2 maintenance vessel formerly operated by UK-based Sealion Shipping.

The 87-metre vessel will sail as Ile d’Ouessant with its new owners. It will be used primarily as a maintenance vessel for cables in the Atlantic, taking over the work done by the 1982-built Peter Faber.

The conversion of Ile d’Ouessant will be carried out by Louis Dreyfus Armateurs (LDA). The vessel is expected to become operational by the end of the first quarter of 2020.
