Stork Technical Services lands major West Africa subsea inspection project.

 

Stork Technical Services (Stork), the leading global provider of knowledge-based asset integrity management services for the chemical, oil and gas and power sectors, today announces a major £10million contract win for subsea inspection activity with a major operator, offshore West Africa. Stork announced the contract at the Subsea 2012 exhibition, where the company is exhibiting for the first time on stand A25 on Wednesday 8 and Thursday 9 February 2012 at the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre.

 

The award, which is Stork’s first subsea project in the region, involves the complete underwater inspection of an FPSO (floating production, storage and offloading vessel) and loading facilities’ subsea infrastructure to ensure integrity of the hull and associated equipment. To service the contract and future subsea activity across the globe, Stork has entered a 15-month charter of the specialist dive support vessel, Adam’s Vision, which is equipped with highly-efficient azimuth thrusters and a DPII dynamic positioning system for safe and cost-effective operations. The vessel is fitted with a complete air and nitrox diving spread and daughter craft.

 

Approximately 60 Stork Subsea employees will be involved in the project, with the onsite operatives working from the Adam’s Vision and dive intervention craft supported by an onshore project management team in Aberdeen, UK.

 

The contract will be serviced by Stork’s dedicated subsea division, Stork Technical Services Subsea, which was re-named following the recent rebrand of RBG. Stork Subsea delivers the full range of underwater services from across the Stork group including air and nitrox diving, subsea IRM (inspection, repair and maintenance), wet welding and mechanical and bolting solutions.

 

The division has an experienced team of more than 300 skilled divers and specialist project managers and utilises the company’s bespoke dive intervention craft and chartered mother vessels to deliver innovative subsea solutions safely for the most technically challenging workscopes. Roddy James, director of Stork Technical Services Subsea, said: “Stork has a significant presence in the subsea sector through its acquired companies and uniting the expertise, experience and technology innovation from across the organisation means we can enhance our already impressive integrated service offering.

“We have significant expansion plans this year and will be investing in new vessels, equipment and people to ensure we continue to deliver significant cost and efficiency benefits for our customers. The technical skills, breadth of service and focus on innovation within Stork Subsea means the recent West Africa contract win will be the first of many.”
