Hallin Marine Subsea Completes Free Span Correction Offshore Taiwan
Hallin Marine Subsea International Ltd, a Superior Energy Services company, has recently been awarded and carried out a free span correction contract offshore Taiwan.
The contract was awarded by the CPC Corporation, Taiwan (CPC), and was carried out in water depths of between 80 and 110 metres by Hallin ROVs and Saturation divers working from its vessel, the DP2 classed Sanko Angel.
The work was on the CPC LNG pipeline offshore Taiwan, in Taiwan straits, and Hallin was supported by its local partner, Unilux. Project management was primarily done from Hallin’s Singapore base.
Hallin supplied and operated its own designed and built C-ROVs vehicles, a 12-man SAT System and all the grouting equipment, survey, deck and project personnel onboard the Sanko Angel, along with grout and groutbags, while Unilux performed onsite pipeline survey work.
Rik Zwinkels, the managing director of Hallin’s East Division, said: ’We are pleased to have been awarded and successfully completed this contract by CPC and to have worked with Unilux.
‘This was a contract ideally suited to Hallin, combining the capabilities of saturation diving and ROVs. We have used the Hallin manufactured Modular Saturation diving system, which is an accepted success in the industry. Also with our C-ROV, which is an efficient and robust 100HP ROV, we have a lot of experience and confidence in using.
‘Due to this equipment, our experienced people, the stable platform of the Sanko Angel and the professionalism of Unilux, we have pleased to report that we completed this project successfully’
