Russian company, Sovcomflot, has withdrawn redelivery notice for Vyacheslav Tikhonov seismic vessel with Polarcus. The vessel, originally named Polarcus Selma, has been on a long-term charter with Sovcomflot since delivery from the yard in 2011. The Vyacheslav Tikhonov is a high ice class 8 streamer vessel suited for 3D XArray exploration requiring cable separations of 160 to 200 meters. It was built to the Ulstein SX133 design and incorporated the Ulstein X-Bow hull. Polarcus will not receive charter hire from 31 May 2020 until startup of a new project anticipated to start in Q3 2020. In December of last year the companies agreed to postpone the redelivery of the vessel until the completion of work which Sovcomflot secured in Asia. The redelivery was expected in Q2 2020, but Sovcomflot decided to withdraw notice of redelivery in light of further project opportunities, after it completed the project in Asia. Redelivery of the vessel is now expected to be following completion of the new project, or alternatively, on short notice if no project is awarded for the vessel in the summer season, the company noted.
Lopez said he was concerned about the demands of the calendar, with the Olympics coming in the middle of the North American hard-court season leading up to the US Open. The 34-year-old wrote on his Facebook page: “I want to communicate my resignation to participate in the Rio 2016 Olympic Games based on the calendar, and with the aim of having the best possible tournaments this summer and especially in the US.”I have always felt a special pride in representing Spain in all competitions and this has therefore been a very difficult decision.Lopez came close to podium success during the London Olympics with partner David Ferrer that saw the duo placed fourth in the doubles.“Both Games gave me the opportunity to live an unforgettable experience as an athlete.I now hope other colleagues who perhaps have not had the opportunity to represent Spain in Olympic Games can enjoy the same. I wish them all luck in Rio.”Deciding to concentrate on other tournaments, Lopez will not be joining 2008 Olympic champion Rafael Nadal, who has been selected to carry the Spanish flag at the Opening Ceremony on August 5.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Spanish tennis player Feliciano Lopez has announced he will not take part in the 2016 Rio Olympics due to scheduling challenges.The world No 23, who would have been a likely choice for the Spanish Olympic Committee, has previously reached two Olympic Games in 2004 and 2012, but failed to win a medal on either occasion.
