Hallin Marine Australia's Subsea Operations Vessel (SOV) 'Windermere' obtains NOPSEMA Safety Case certification.

The National Offshore Petroleum Safety & Environmental Management Authority's (NOPSEMA) Safety Case acceptance enables the vessel to operate in Australian Commonwealth waters carrying out subsea (diving and ROV) and offshore support operations in circumstances where a Vessel Safety Case is a pre requisite.

The Windermere also has Safety Case approval from the Western Australian Department of Mines and Petroleum for any operations undertaken in state territorial waters (within the 3 nautical mile limit).



Fully IMCA compliant, Hallin's SOV Windermere is equipped for well servicing, inspection and construction diving as well as remote-operated submersible vehicle support. Capable of accommodating 120 personnel, the 80 x 77 metre vessel incorporates a helicopter landing deck, an active heave compensated crane capable of working up to 1500 metres water depth, a 15-man saturation diving system with a three-man diving bell, which is launched through a moon pool.

Commenting on the acceptance of the NOPSEMA safety case, Rik Zwinkels, Managing Director of Hallin East observed, “This is a major step for our Australian operation as it allows us to execute the next step in our growth strategy in that market, which involves locating the Windermere as a core Australian asset. Our clients in Australia have been very supportive of our plans to bring the Windermere to Australia and we are looking forward to a long and productive relationship.”
