Maersk Supply Service Wins Major UK FPSO Tow And Mooring Installation Project
An integrated FPSO tow and mooring installation project have been given to Maersk Supply Service for operating in the North Sea.
The work to be done will comprise management, engineering and offshore execution of the project which is related to six anchor handling tug supply and subsea support vessels.
Maersk Supply Service will be responsible for providing the complete work from the preparation of the site, installation of pile anchors, tow of the FPSO to the final hook-up operations.
This will be the fourth large moorings project that will be delivered by Maersk Supply Service after it made an announcement to expand and provide integrated solutions in November 2016. Management and engineering of projects will add up to its fleet of over 40 vessels and the great amount of experience it has 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 schedule, 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.
