Bluestream Bags Total IRM Deal
Bluestream has been awarded the inspection, repair and maintenance contract with Total E&P Nederland for 36 offshore sites.
The contract is part of a long term frame agreement that has been in place since 2009.
The work scope covers the subsea inspection of 29 platform structures and seven free standing domes on the North Sea Dutch Continental Shelf. In addition, a Bluestream rope access team will inspect structures of the topsides which are at locations difficult to access with standard equipment, the company explained.
With the offshore operations to be completed this summer, Bluestream teamed up with Vroon Offshore Services as its maritime partner utilizing the DP2 vessel ‘VOS Sugar’.
Bluestream will execute the complete inspection and cleaning work in two phases. During the first phase Bluestream’s own fully equipped inspection class Seaeye Tiger ROV and the compact work class Seaeye Cougar XT ROV will be used, while a team of inspection divers will be deployed during the second phase.
Adriaen Winckers, responsible for Business Development at Bluestream said: “We have successfully supported Total’s operations for eight consecutive years now and are delighted to have been selected again to continue and strengthen this working relationship. The contract demonstrates confidence in our ability to deliver challenging inspection projects.”
