OSBIT Power has secured additional facilities at the Port of Blyth to deliver its largest project yet to Helix Energy Solutions.

In an agreement with the Port, the company will utilise its facilities on a 12-month basis to manufacture three sets of intervention tension frames (ITFs).

The systems, each weighing 100 tonnes and standing at over 20 metres high, will be delivered by a team of eight engineers and technicians based at the port.

The ITFs will each be installed on one of three new vessels. The systems should provide a safer working environment from which coiled tubing and wire line operations can be conducted. Each ITF has three platform levels for personnel to conduct operations using dedicated skidding systems.

Once complete, OSBIT will utilise Port of Blyth’s load out quay facilities to deliver the three systems across the world. The first two will be delivered to Germany for installation on the Siem Helix 1 and 2 vessels, while the third unit will be shipped to Jurong shipyard in Singapore where Helix’s Q7000 vessel is being constructed.
