Aquatic – JFO Alliance Wraps Up Ocean Installer Project

Aquatic Engineering & Construction, an Acteon company, and recent alliance partner James Fisher Offshore Ltd (JFO), have completed their first global collaboration project for Ocean Installer Texas in the Gulf of Mexico.

The project scope includes recovery and reinstallation of moorings lines on a GoM production facility in ultra-deepwater. Working in partnership, Aquatic and JFO provided a full back deck solution and equipment spread.

Aquatic’s Americas regional manager, Bob Terrell said, “This alliance was created for precisely this type of project where a client requires a fast turnaround, a range of equipment easily accessible and a team of experienced technicians who will ensure the operation runs smoothly and efficiently.

Aquatic’s equipment included an 80Te powered reel winch with a track system for multi-reel lay and a 20Te tensioner for handling the mooring lines. JFO’s equipment included a 100Te subsea winch for critical lifting operations as well as a 30Te and two 20Te deck winches for deck handling operations. The equipment was operated by a six-man offshore crew.

Jack Davidson, managing director at James Fisher Offshore, said: “JFO and Aquatic have developed an excellent relationship that enables us to respond to customer requirements swiftly on a global basis, utilizing our combined resources and strategic bases.”

Geir Hammer, project/engineering manager at Ocean Installer Texas added: “Ocean Installer is pleased to have further developed our working relationship with Aquatic during the successful execution of this project. 

“I am confident that the success of this partnership will also continue in the future. It is very good for us to see the benefits that the synergies of the Aquatic and JFO entities services bring to the table, streamlining the joint delivery of personnel and suite of equipment to complete our projects.”
