Hallin Marine, a Superior Energy Services company, has extended its Malaysian presence with the commencement of a series of inspection, repair and maintenance (IRM) operations for oilfield operators active off the peninsula.
“This is a multimillion U.S. dollar contract with its central focus on saturation diving from the SOV Windermere at various locations off the Malaysian peninsula,” said Rik Zwinkels, Managing Director. “It involves various projects over a two-month timeframe continuing through August with options to extend. A key factor in Hallin’s securing the contract was the proven excellence of the Windermere, which is one of the most modern and cost-efficient subsea operation vessels currently active in the region.”
Fully IMCA compliant, the SOV Windermere is equipped for wellhead servicing, inspection and construction diving, as well as remotely operated submersible vehicle support. Capable of accommodating 120 people, the 80–by-77 meter DSV features a helicopter landing deck, high-capacity crane (1,500 meter), a 15-man saturation diving system and three-man moonpool diving bell.
