The 1985 built BHS flag accomodation vessel SAFE SWIFT was seen leaving Valletta, Malta on Thursday 28th December 2017 after she entered for mobilizing at the Mediterranean Maritime Hub (MMH). She was originally built in Frederikshavn Shipyard, Denmark as the Danish ro/ro ship MERCANDIAN CONTINENT for Mercandia Lines until January 1996; RORO SENTOSA until January 2000; SENTOSA until 13th September 2000; KRAKA until May 2009 where she was completely converted and upgraded at Blohm & Voss, Germany as DAN SWIFT and lately renamed SAFE SWIFT.
TechnipFMC-managed Bahr Essalam natural gas field development will be tied back to the Sabratha platform, situated approximately 110 kilometers off the Libyan coast in a water depth of approximately 190 meters.
The field is operated by Mellitah Oil & Gas Libyan Branch, a consortium between National Oil Corporation and Eni North Africa.
The Safe Swift, accommodating over 200 persons, will operate gangway connected to the Sabratha platform.
