Far Saga is taken on Time Charter from Farstad Shipping ASA to Fugro RUE A/S after more than 10 years in service for Acergy /SS7 in the North Sea.

The Supporter WORKROV has been positioned on A-deck to enable maximum liftoff and clearance under the vehicle to accommodate virtually any ROV-based skid up to 3 T. The Cougar OBSROV is positioned in the starboard hangar. Both ROV control rooms are containerized, linked together and placed on A-deck. Main crane is a Hydramarine AHC 100 T in double fall and 50 T single fall with 1500 msw capacity at 50 T. The crane has a 10 T AHC whipline at 800 m length.
