HARKAND has completed the transportation and installation of two large jumpers in the Gulf of Mexico utilising the HOS Mystique.
The global subsea inspection, repair, maintenance, and light construction company has provided a cost effective vessel for light subsea construction in 2000ft. (610m) water depth, approximately 160 miles southwest of New Orleans.
The contract delivery was supported by Harkand’s onshore team of project managers and engineering services based in the Houston office.
Managing director for Harkand North America and Africa, AJ Jain, said: “This project showcases our capability to engineer cost effective solutions for our clients. The jumpers which were originally designed to be installed with a bigger vessel; were installed using the HOS Mystique without any incident, on schedule and within budget.”
The Jones Act compliant 250 ft (76.2 m) offshore construction vessel has accommodations for 62 personnel, a 70 MT AHC crane with 2500m wire, a Triton XLS ROV and full survey spread. Harkand is now adding a second light work-class ROV to further enhance the HOS Mystique capabilities. HOS Mystique now has a successful track record of installing jumpers, flying leads, SCM pod change outs and general IRM scopes at a fraction of the cost of the larger vessels.
