Auxilium Offshore Inks Deal for Underwater Safety Centre in Asia

Auxilium Offshore has signed a contract with an undisclosed client to design, construct and install fit for purpose equipment for an underwater safety centre in Asia.

The equipment supply exists of a wet bell with launch & recovery system, an adjustable diving stage, a hyperbaric chamber to accommodate 10 persons, as well as all related water and gas management systems including control and observation systems.

The underwater safety centre will be used to simulate several diving activities and subsea emergency procedures. All equipment will be built and assembled in Europe and shipped to Asia for final installation and commissioning.

Fleur Loef, managing director, said: “Whereas we traditionally focused on the North Sea region, this contract is an important stepping stone to build up a track record and further expand our activities in Asia and beyond. We are convinced that Auxilium Offshore can bring added value in design and construction of marine assets & mission equipment.

“This contract proves that the expertise we have built up in the offshore energy industry, can also benefit other sectors such as the Navy and maritime training institutions. We are pleased with this opportunity to contribute to the development of enhanced underwater training facilities in Asia and to promote cooperation amongst industries.”

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.
