New annexes broaden scope of SUPPLYTIME 2017


BIMCO has developed four annexes for specialised tasks not covered under the SUPPLYTIME charter party.

The SUPPLYTIME charter party from BIMCO is often used for a variety of offshore related tasks and operations that do not fall under the charter, tasks such as operating a helideck or motion compensated gangway or providing crew changes and replenishment of stores when working offshore for extended periods of time.

To help SUPPLYTIME users ensure that the minimum requirements for specialised tasks and operations are properly covered when using SUPPLYTIME 2017, BIMCO has published four operational annexes: Helicopter and Helideck Operations; Extended Offshore Support; Crew Qualifications; and Walk to Work. 

More annexes are currently under development, including annexes for dynamic positioning (DP), remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) and diving platform operations.

The four new annexes can be found here.

BIMCO would like to thank the following people for their help in developing the special task annexes for SUPPLYTIME:

  • Mr Ian Perrott, ISOA, Independent Offshore Consultant (Chairperson)
  • Mr Steve Marshall, Sealion Shipping Ltd
  • Ms Annette Lilja, Maersk Supply Service
  • Mr Hendrick Drossman, SeaRenergy
  • Mr Alf Magnar Liknes, Uptime 
  • Ms Boukje Heil, Ampelmann
