Jesper K. Andresen, Prosafe's CEO says, "The financial results for the fourth
quarter of 2020 and for the full year 2020 reflect lower utilization and average
day rates as a result of the downcycle and Covid-19. Still we managed to protect
our order book, secure new contracts and extensions, and generate a positive
EBITDA. I am pleased about the organisation's ability to adapt and manoeuvre
under challenging circumstances."
