Oceaneering International has entered into a long-term agreement with Mærsk Supply Service to support its global operations.
Under the contract Oceaneering will provide eight work-class remotely operated vehicles (ROVs), survey and associated services, including subsea tooling, engineering, communication and data solutions.
These ROVs will be installed onboard six Mærsk newbuild vessels, comprising of two Stingray-class subsea intervention vessels and four Starfish-class anchor handling tug supply vessels, which are scheduled for delivery through 2017.
M. Kevin McEvoy, chief executive officer of Oceaneering, said, “We are excited about the opportunity to continue our long-standing relationship with Mærsk as one of their preferred providers. This award is consistent with our stated objective to increase the number of ROVs onboard third-party vessels while maintaining our ROV market share on contracted rigs and those most likely to return to work.”
“Through this strong partnership with Oceaneering we are able to simplify the planning and procurement process for clients by offering multiple services in one agreement. This cooperation is a prime example of how our new Integrated Solutions business area is dedicated to providing a smoother sourcing and execution process for our customers worldwide,” said Olivier Trouve, head of Integrated Solutions of Maersk.
