The Edradour

Stork Technical Services, a global provider of knowledge-based asset integrity management services for the oil and gas, chemical and power sectors, announced a further £2 million investment in its new daughter craft, The Edradour.

The Edradour will be delivered to the Subsea division later this month and will provide additional operational support to meet the expanding needs of Stork’s diving operations as well as complementing its existing fleet; daughter craft, the Aberlour, a mother vessel, the SIEM Stork, and three dive intervention craft.

The Edradour has the same design specification as the Aberlour which will allow both crafts to be interchangeable with the existing twin davit system.

Roddy James, SVP of Stork Technical Subsea, said, “We are very pleased to welcome The Edradour to our fleet. The shared design specification allows compatibility with our existing launch and recovery system and will bring familiarisation to all our crews resulting in a greater safety recovery and efficiency in our diving operations”.

In addition, The Edradour has additional lifting capability for four point lifting, providing vessel crane launch and recovery capabilities and increased generator capacity - resulting in greater ROV and electrical equipment capacity.

James continued, “With over 300 skilled divers, a highly experienced onshore support team and specialist project managers we are able to continue providing innovative subsea solutions safely in the most technically challenging environments.”
