As detailed in the Viking Star section, Viking Star is very involved and dedicated to the offshore sector, but also our port of Las Palmas is well prepared to receive and attend the high standard requirements of the offshore sector with availability of all kind of support services, such as qualified workshops, heavy lift cranes, divers, etc. The port also offers excellent berthing piers with depth enough for larger drill rigs or large crane units together with pier surface storage possibilities.
Las Palmas Authorities are also most cooperative in the call of this kind of units with important discounts in case of larger repairs. Also, and for the case of rig equipped with DP2 / 3 and for shorter mobilization / bunker calls they are allowed to remain on dynamic positioning avoiding berthing maneuvers saving a lot of time and cost.
The port is able to berth up to five rigs at the time at the end of pier Reina Sofia (outer breakwaters) where depth is between 18 and 22 meters.
