Mulgrave, NS – April 19, 2018 – In association with Tidewater Marine, Horizon Maritime has just added two, state-of-the-art, supply vessels to their Canadian offshore support vessel fleet. The Troms Sirius and Lundstrom Tide will add more capacity and capability to the offshore industry in Canada and further build on the growth that Horizon Maritime—based in St. John’s and Halifax—has experienced in recent years.

The imported vessels are Norwegian-built and designed to operate in harsh environments. Incorporating the latest in equipment & technology, the vessels are of the highest build quality and offer increased capability and cargo capacity for Canadian offshore customers.

The Troms Sirius and Lundstrom Tide will build on the previously established relationship between Tidewater Marine and Horizon Maritime, providing local seafarers with additional opportunities to operate some of the most advanced and safest offshore vessels in the world, close to home.

Previously, Tidewater Marine and Horizon Maritime worked together to support Shell Canada’s
Shelburne Basin Deep-Water Exploration Project offshore Nova Scotia, during which Horizon Maritime personnel operated Tidewater Marine vessels, Breaux Tide and Jones Tide, over a roughly 18 month time-frame.

Both the Troms Sirius and Lundstrom Tide are Canadian registered vessels and are crewed with Atlantic Canadians, combining the best in local expertise and marine management with equipment and depth of experience from the world’s largest offshore support vessel company.

“Our growing fleet of the most modern and versatile vessels in the world, provides our customers with a new level of industry-leading performance in the harshest of offshore environments, here in Canada. The arrival of the Troms Sirius and Lundstrom Tide to our region, builds on our depth and expands our capabilities.”
Graham Curren, Vice-President Business Development, Horizon Maritime

“With momentum building across the offshore and marine sector globally, we are proud to be a
Canadian company, providing Canadian seafarers and our customers, with the best equipment available anywhere in the world—our people are truly the foundation of our ongoing success and we are fortunate to have great people.”
Steve Widmeyer, Executive Vice-President, Horizon Maritime
