Hallin Marine Subsea International Ltd, a Superior Energy Services company, has won a $25 million, five-year contract to supply ROV services from Marine Subsea AS for the new build subsea intervention vessel Karianne. Under the terms of the contract, Hallin will supply two new Quantum XP 200hp work class ROVs and handling systems and the teams of operators and technicians to deploy and operate the vehicles. Hallin has ordered the ROVs from UK manufacturer SMD and the vehicles will use bespoke handling systems and hangers that will be built into the 120 metre, state of the art vessel.
The 3,000 m rated, work class ROVs will give the Karianne great flexibility in its primary role as a subsea well intervention and construction support vessel in the deepwater regions across the globe.
Hallin will have at any one time, depending on Karianne’s workload, between six and 12 of its staff on board the vessel, which is scheduled for delivery to Marine Subsea in October this year.
Oslo headquartered Marine Subsea AS offers a range of subsea well intervention, decommissioning and construction support solutions to the global subsea oil and gas industry. The company operates a fleet of vessels, including multipurpose/intervention vessels, five offshore support units and a semi-submersible crane.
