Maersk Supply Service has been awarded an integrated FPSO tow and mooring installation project for an operator in the North Sea. The work scope includes project management, engineering and offshore execution involving six anchor handling tug supply and subsea support vessels.
Maersk Supply Service will provide the full scope from site preparation, installation of pile anchors, tow of the FPSO, through to final hook up operations.
This is the fourth large moorings project Maersk Supply Service is delivering following its announcement to expand and offer integrated solutions in November 2016, adding project management and engineering on top of its in-house fleet of more than 40 vessels and extensive experience as a marine service provider.
“Last year we successfully carried out the tow and installation of the Ailsa FSO for the Culzean field. This was an important opportunity for us to showcase our capabilities in providing turnkey solutions to the market. The synergies gained from combining the role of vessel owner with project contractor to deliver our solution from one unified team exceeded our expectations and enabled us to meet demanding targets on scheduling, cost, and of course safety. We look forward to continuing to build on this track record within the UK sector,” says Head of Integrated Solutions, Olivier Trouvé.
