Originally owned and converted by the Aberdeenshire-based Ferguson Group the offshore support vessel is now owned by a single purpose company ASV Pioneer Limited.

After its original delivery from the shipyard in September 2011, the vessel worked in cable lay mode, under charter to a major offshore contractor.  This entailed the installation of a full cable lay spread, 4.500 tonne cable carousel, guides, A-frame and plough with associated ancillary equipment aboard the vessel to make it possible for the client to lay the final main export cable from the Greater Gabbard Wind Farm to the shore terminal at a power station site on the East Coast of England.

This project was completed in March 2012 after working over the winter months and was followed by a charter to support of the salvage of the Costa Concordia off the coast of Italy.  The ASV Pioneer was equipped with a full diving spread to support over 50 divers and a large cement plant, which was used in connection with the righting of the vessel.

ASV Pioneer is a versatile offshore accommodation solution which is unique in the marketplace. Built to the highest quality and safety standards it offers demonstrable flexibility of accommodation configuration and a large open deck space capable of a multitude of uses to support the offshore oil and gas or renewable energy industries as well as more general marine support operation.

The offshore support vessel currently has accommodation for 100 POB in well appointed en-suite rooms and is complete with office, galley, mess, medical and recreational facilities, to provide an ideal living and working environment.
