Golden Energy Offshore has beefed up its fleet with five ships in a $95m deal with Vroon.

The Oslo-listed, Alesund-based offshore vessel owner said it had signed an agreement to buy four platform supply vessels and a subsea support unit from the newly-reorganised Dutch player, bringing its fleet from three ships to eight.

Chief executive Per Ivar Fagervoll described the transaction as transformative for Golden Energy, putting the company on track for further growth.
