Harris Pye Takes on More Offshore Projects

Press Release
Thursday, April 19, 2012

Global maritime and offshore oil and gas engineering company Harris Pye is making significant gains in the offshore oil and gas market, according to Group Managing Director Mark Prendergast.

“We are currently undertaking three major rig renovations simultaneously in the UK, Singapore and Brazil,” said Prendergast.  “All three projects will be completed by the end of May, and I look forward to releasing project details at that time.”

In January, the company completed a comprehensive refit and refurbishment of Diamond Offshore Drilling Inc’s (DODI) drillship, The Ocean Clipper.  All works were completed in just 90 days.  The scale of the project was immense and included electrical works, accommodation, painting, cranes, 250 tons of steelwork, over two miles of piping renewals, and the removal and replacement of transformers and motors.

Simultaneous to the Ocean Clipper renovations, Harris Pye also completed a major project on the Maersk Discoverer, which was undertaken while the rig was on tow from South Africa to Egypt.  As well as electrical work, heavy pipes were rigged and man-handled into difficult positions, then fully welded in situ.
