The CEO of VARD, Roy Reite, said, "This was one of the largest and most complex projects undertaken by VARD to date, where we also had responsibility for the turnkey delivery of topsides. I would like to thank our long-time customer DOF and the team at VARD for the excellent cooperation, making this proud achievement possible."
 
Mons S. Aase continued, "It has been quite a journey since DOF started in 1981 with delivery of Skandi Hav and Skandi Fjord, where the vessel Skandi Africa incorporates 35 years of experience from both ship management and subsea part of the organization. I look forward to seeing the vessel in operation in the years to come."
