Malaysia-based Yinson Energy has awarded DOF Subsea a contract to provide transportation and installation services to position and moor the FPSO Helang on the Layang field, Sarawak, Malaysia.
The award covers project management, engineering, towing and mooring services and is due to be completed by Q3 2019.
DOF Subsea, owned by DOF ASA (64.9%) and First Reserve Corporation (35.1%) will employ the construction support vessel Skandi Hercules.
Built in 2010, Skandi Hercules is a 109.5-m multi-purpose vessel with construction support vessel features based on an STX AH04 CD anchor handling tug supply vessel design. Well suited for field installation operations in a wide range of water depths, Skandi Hercules is classed by DNV GL.
DOF Subsea chief executive Mons S Aase said, “We look forward to working with Yinson to deliver a safe and efficient project.”
