Six ships have recently docked at Aibel Haugesund yard for overhauling, classification and upgrading.

Deep Wave and Deep Investigator from subsea services player DeepOcean are undergoing upgrading/classification and demobilisation/smaller upgrades.

Edda Fides and Edda Fonn are visitors from shipowner Østensjø, while Normand Oceanic has arrived from shipowner Solstad. Both Edda Fonn and Normand Oceanic will undergo crane upgrades while at quay.

Finally, Rem Poseidon, also from Solstad, is in for various services, including a traditional hull surface treatment in the drydock.

With a total of six ships at quay at once, the yardstay capacity is fully utilised.

“Good references from previous assignments, competitive terms and the yard’s flexibility have been important to ensure new contracts. Even though we are facing a though market, this will remain an important focus area for Aibel moving forward,” says Bjørn Tollefsen, EVP Modifications and Yard Services.

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
