M² Subsea to Support Nord Stream 2 UXO Survey
- Operations & Maintenance
M² Subsea has secured a contract to supply the Go Electra vessel with ROVs and personnel to support survey work on the Nord Stream 2 subsea pipeline system.
The company has been sub-contracted by Next Geosolutions to deliver the campaign in the Baltic Sea. The contract is valued in excess of one million pounds.
Next Geosolutions was appointed to carry out unexploded ordnance identification (UXO) surveys on the two new pipelines.
To support the 90-day project on the Nord Stream 2, M² Subsea has signed its first charter agreement for the multipurpose support vessel (MSV) the Go Electra.
The scope of work will be project managed from Aberdeen and will see the MSV deployed from Hanko in Finland, and supported by 15 of M² Subsea’s personnel who will carry out the UXO identification work utilizing a Triton XLX 2 work class ROV and a Mohican 5 observation/inspection class ROV from the firm’s fleet.
M² Subsea chief executive officer Mike Arnold said: “This contract award from Next Geosolutions is great for the business and a significant scope of work for us to win.
“We are very pleased to have chartered the Go Electra which is a highly specialized vessel for subsea inspection, repair and maintenance work and ideal for supporting the conditions the team and ROVs face in the Baltic.
“We look forward to delivering a safe and successful project for Next Geosolutions.”
Giovanni Ranieri, Next Geosolutions’ CEO, said: “This is an exciting project for Next Geosolutions and we’re delighted to have the opportunity to work with M² Subsea.”
The Nord Stream twin offshore pipeline system runs from Russia to Germany and measures 1,244km in length.
