DeepOcean has been awarded a contract for the provision of post-lay trenching and survey works in Australia. Works will be performed from DeepOcean’s DPII MSV Volantis using the 2,800hp jet trencher UT-1.
The contract for post-lay intervention works is scheduled for Q4 2015 and will see DeepOcean’s Volantis mobilize from current works offshore Malaysia to Australian waters. The company did not reveal the identity of the client, nor the financial value of the contract.
Tony Stokes, Managing Director of Asia Pacific & Middle East, states, “We are extremely pleased to receive this award in Australian waters. This project highlights the requirement for such front-end trenching technology in the region and the demand for expertise found within DeepOcean and the UT-1. We look forward to a successful campaign and growing our presence in Australian waters”
