DCN Diving said via social media channels last week that the Normand Mermaid would be used on North Sea diving and ROV campaigns.

The company added that the scope of the deal also includes construction, installation, IMR, and decommissioning work.

DCN told Offshore Energy Today that the charter for the Normand Mermaid was signed several weeks ago.

“We will be using the [Normand] Mermaid on the Dana project we have announced earlier. [Mobilization] is planned mid-June,” the company added in an email.

Namely, DCN received a contract from Dana Petroleum in February to carry out work offshore the Netherlands.

Under the contract, DCN will execute the fabrication, installation, and pre-commissioning of various tie-in spools and a flanged connector for Dana’s new DP-012 gas export pipeline. The pipeline links the Dutch P15D and P11B (De Ruyter) platforms.

The De Ruyter platform, operated by Dana Petroleum Netherlands, came on stream in September 2006. The development, which consists of a permanently manned platform and a tanker mooring and loading system (TMLS), is located in block P11b, some 60 kilometers northwest of Den Haag in a water depth of 34 meters.

As for the vessel, Normand Mermaid is a light construction support vessel (LCSV) delivered in 2002. The vessel is equipped with a DP class 3 system, 100-tonne crane capacity and a 765 square meter deck.
