MMA wins subsea support job in renewable sector
Marine services provider MMA Offshore has won a contract to support foundation installation for an offshore wind project in Taiwan.
To that end, MMA will use the MPSV MMA Vigilant to monitor the seabed for dredging and piling work.
The company’s Vessel Operations, Subsea Services as well as Project Logistics business units will execute the subsea work scope.
Last year the company boosted its subsea services portfolio with the acquisition of its Australian compatriot Neptune Marine Services.
The ASX-listed firm wrapped up the acquisition in November 2019 for the final purchase consideration of A$18.5 million.
The contract duration will run for approximately two months and is also MMA’s first vessel contract within the renewable sector.
MMA Vigilant vessel is capable of light construction work, ROV support and project tasks, as well as standard platform and drilling rig supply.
The vessel has carried out subsea geotechnical work, including Benthic’s PROD system in over 2,000 metres of water depth.
The company’s managing director, David Ross, said:
“Expanding our service offering into supporting the renewable sector is a key step in executing our growth strategy.”
“We are excited to be commencing this work scope and are looking forward to this being the first of many vessel contracts for the company in support of the renewable sector.”
