Subsea World News has put together a recap of the most interesting articles from the previous week (November 16 – November 22).
Previously known as Tender Captain, Far Captain and Skandi Captain, the diving support vessel is approximately 81 meters long, equipped with SWL 50 ton offshore crane, has a 101 square meters ROV hangar and it’s fit to accommodate 64 people.
The author, Antoine Paillat, believes we should see recovery later in the decade and this results in an overall compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.3% for ROV expenditure over the forecast period.
LSWE is set to deliver its first 15-man Single Bell Saturation Diving System complete with Surface Air Dive System to Fujian Mawei Shipbuilding for Tasik Subsea’s newbuild Subsea Operation Vessel “Tasik Toba”.
The Saturation Diving System can operate in water depths of up to 300 meters with a Surface Air Diving System capable of operating in water depths of 50 meters.
The Oslo-listed company said that, for the winter season, Edda Fonn and/or Stril Explorer, ROV/Survey vessels, could be pulled out from operation, which would also result in workforce adjustment.
Under the contract, which runs from July 2015 and includes extension options for a further two years, Fugro is providing a full range of ROV services to conduct IMR activities on TEP UK pipelines, subsea assets and jackets.
