Aleron Scoops Up Contracts in North Africa
- Project & Tenders
Aleron has recently secured two contract wins in the North Africa region through its group companies, Aleron Subsea and ROVQUIP.
Under the contracts, the company supplied Aleron Subsea Triton XL ROV together with ROVQUIP’s new decommissioning multi-mode cutting tool to Oceana Subsea.
The ROV system is used by Oceana on a subsea intervention project and will remain available for additional work in the Mediterranean, the company explained.
Aleron managing director, Mike Bisset, said: “Aleron’s business model is a perfect fit for Oceana Subsea, who are making great progress as an ROV operator. We have rented them highly capable assets, allowing them to add to their capability without deploying the level of resource required to acquire and maintain a wider range of ROV systems and tooling.
“This is further complemented by ROVQUIP’s design and production skills, based at the same facility close to Aberdeen. ROVQUIP designed and built a bespoke diamond wire cutter, specific to the project scope, within an extremely tight deadline. The rapid deployment of this tool enabled the project to proceed on time and complete the cut-off and recovery of a 30” concrete filled subsea conductor.”
Gad Habiby, managing director of Oceana Subsea said: “The rapid turn-around of the saw development and deployment enabled us to meet our project deadlines for mobilisation of the system. Oceana Subsea has found the availability of both ROV systems and engineering skills from the Aleron group to be a major advantage in the integration and test of the spread prior to mobilization.”
