Harkand-Da-Vinci

Harkand has completed offshore inspection, repair and maintenance (IRM) campaign for BP Trinidad and Tobago (BPTT).

The company used its Harkand Da Vinci diving support vessel (DSV) and the hyperbaric rescue facility (HRF).

As part of the campaign, Harkand carried out deadleg inspection of BPTT offshore assets, pipeline intervention, caisson repair works, installation of platform and pipeline clamps in addition to inspection and recovery of a caisson section.

Services also included saturation and surface diving, remotely operated vehicles (ROV), survey, inspection as well as project management and engineering.

"Securing this contract with BP Trinidad and Tobago was a significant win in the region."

Harkand CEO John Reed said: "Securing this contract with BP Trinidad and Tobago was a significant win in the region. The work involved an array of specialist subsea services and engineering, cementing our track record in the area.

"This work followed successful campaigns by both the Houston and Aberdeen operation bases in the Caribbean during 2014 and 2015 for major global oil and gas operators."

Built by Harkand in the Gulf of Mexico in August 2015, HRF was established in Chaguaramas on the north-west peninsula of Trinidad for the campaign.

DSV is fitted with a 140 Te active heave compensated crane, an 18-man twin bell saturation diving system, which is rated to 300m water depth.

The vessel is also equipped with one three-man wet bell and one two-man surface diving system and was mobilised with two ROVs.
