Osbit Upgrades DeepOcean’s Subsea Plough for Nord Stream 2 Job

Osbit has secured a project with DeepOcean to upgrade its subsea plough, which will be used during the installation of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline.

DeepOcean’s Advanced Multi-Pass plough (AMP500) will be deployed to the Baltic Sea for the construction of the 1,200km Nord Stream 2 pipeline, which will transport natural gas from Russia to the European Union.

To meet the requirements of the Nord Stream 2 project, the AMP500 is required to accommodate a larger diameter pipeline.

This will be facilitated by implementation of a new share, major pipe handling equipment upgrades and the installation of Osbit’s control system which will provide the latest operational control technology for the plough.

The project will be delivered at Port of Blyth, where both companies have quayside operations, and will be completed to the required strict timescale of 30 weeks.

Robbie Blakeman, director at Osbit, said: “Our unique structure, systems and processes ensure we can deliver this plough upgrade quickly and meet the timescale required by DeepOcean and the Nord Stream 2 development, without compromising safety, quality or reliability.

“Being located close together at Port of Blyth enhances the collaborative nature of this project as we work closely with DeepOcean to deliver our solution, which will enable the AMP500 to effectively operate in the Baltic Sea and other locations requiring large product installation.”

Pierre Boyde, managing director of DeepOcean’s Cable Lay and Trenching Operation, added: “This project will build upon our existing relationship with Osbit and is part of DeepOcean’s commitment to maintaining and developing the most advanced fleet of cable lay and trenching assets in the industry.”
