Oceaneering scoops ROV and subsea tooling work with Heerema
Oceaneering International has entered into a master service agreement with Heerema Marine Contractors (HMC) for providing remotely operated vehicle (ROV) systems and associated subsea tooling equipment.
Oceaneering said on Tuesday that the contract will last through December 2020. For the duration of the contract, Oceaneering will provide up to ten ROV systems with associated subsea tooling, engineering, and technicians.
The company said that it will support HMC’s global operations including fixed and floating platform installations, platform decommissioning, subsea infrastructure and pipeline installations.
The contract states that the ROV systems will be installed onboard HMC’s deepwater construction vessels Aegir, Thialf and Balder; the semi-submersible crane vessels Hermod and Sleipnir (a newbuild vessel); and other additional support vessels.
Kevin McEvoy, Chief Executive Officer of Oceaneering, said: “We are very pleased to have been selected by HMC against a backdrop of what is a very challenging market environment. This is a position we have achieved through our customer focus and commitment to growing market share while safely providing state-of-the-art equipment, highly trained personnel, and complementary engineering services and products.”
