Indonesian contractor Timas Suplindo has chartered Dubai-based Telford Offshore’s Telford 25 to work on the TSB Phase 2 development.
The 3-month charter, which includes options, will see the multi-purpose construction vessel (MPCV) undertake a work scope including installing subsea structures and piles, laying flexible pipes, umbilicals and spoolpieces, and saturation diving on the project offshore Indonesia.
Currently in drydock in Indonesia, Telford 25 will be mobilised in late November for the project. One of four vessels in Telford’s fleet, which all have a dynamic positioning notation of DP3, the MPCV is equipped with an 800-tonne heave-compensated main crane and has 1,500 m2 of unobstructed deck space. The vessel can accommodate 355 people.
Telford Offshore’s managing director Duncan MacPherson said “We are very pleased with this contract from Timas Suplindo.
“Over the course of this project Telford 25 will demonstrate its versatility by supporting multiple activities such as flexible pipelay, saturation diving, lifting, subsea construction and installation services.”
Telford Offshore launched in February 2018, having acquired its fleet of four vessels from Sea Trucks Group following that company's liquidation.
