Island Victory on Barents subsea duty
Island Offshore’s deep water installation vessel Island Victory has secured more work in the Barents Sea this spring.
The vessel has started a 60-90 days contract this month for Ocean Installer at Johan Castberg and Askeladd fields.
“The vessel and its crew have already completed some heavy jobs in the Barents Sea this winter. Island Victory has carried out several pre-lays of anchor systems – jobs where she substituted three vessels alone, proving unparalleled capacity and significant savings both for the customer and for the environment. It also reduces operational risk,” says Tommy Walaunet, managing director of Island Offshore Management.
At Askeladd, Island Victory’s scope of work includes installation of subsea manifolds and performing survey and subsea activity, using the vessel’s two work ROVs as well as the 250 tonnes offshore crane.
At Johan Castberg, Island Victory will install a complete mooring system, including 15 suction anchors and 11.450 metres of Ø170mm chain. The chain itself has a weight of about 590 kilograms per metre in air.
