DOF Subsea has secured contracts for several of its vessels for subsea projects in the North Sea and offshore Africa
The Norway-headquartered group was awarded contracts covering construction, decommissioning, and inspection, maintenance and repair (IMR) of subsea systems. In total, these projects represent more than 340 vessel days of offshore work, excluding options, to be executed during 2021.
DOF Subsea said its vessels Skandi Acergy, Skandi Skansen, Skandi Iceman, Skandi Hera and a contracted third-party vessel would be utilised in the offshore execution phases of these projects. “All awards include project management, engineering, procurement and logistics, which shall be delivered by our integrated subsea team across Bergen and Aberdeen, UK,” said DOF Subsea.
Some of the contract work is for engineering, preparation, removal and disposal under decommissioning contracts. For these, DOF Subsea is planning to deploy multiple vessels during the offshore execution phases.
DOF Subsea chief executive Mons Aase said the North Sea projects were in the UK and Norwegian sectors. “DOF Subsea continues to secure projects across the energy sector, delivering mission-critical solutions without compromising safety,” he said.
DOF Subsea will be active in the renewables sector in 2021. Subsea support vessel Skandi Constructor will support the construction phase of the Global Tech 1 windfarm for at least 150 days.
In addition, DOF Subsea has received several purchase orders related to ongoing contracts in North Sea and offshore Africa.
“These awards are enabling our clients to take advantage of the extended capabilities of the contracted vessels, with access to our integrated marine operations services,” said DOF Subsea.
One of the variation orders allowed DOF Subsea to fast-track a flex-lay installation campaign, delivering project management, engineering, procurement, logistics and offshore execution to a client.
