Harkand has been awarded a contract to support Apache with inspection, repair and maintenance work (IRM) as well as light construction (LC) across their assets in the North Sea, following completion of a competitive tender exercise.
The award includes the provision of vessels, ROV and diving services for a three-year period, plus two one-year options.
Harkand will also support offshore marine construction contractor EMAS AMC who have been awarded a separate contract for pipelay and heavy construction as part of the same tender process.
Harkand Europe managing director, David Kerr, said: “This contract is an important step in strengthening our close working relationship and growing our North Sea business with Apache.
“Having both the Harkand Atlantis and the Harkand Da Vinci DSVs in the North Sea provides Apache with the flexibility they require. By listening to our clients and understanding their needs, we can continue to build long lasting relationships on project delivery, safety and reliability.”
Harkand provides offshore vessels, ROVs, diving, survey services, project management and engineering to the oil and gas and renewables industries. Employing close to 1,000 people at bases in Aberdeen, London, Houston, and Singapore, Harkand aims to be the leading subsea IRM and light construction contractor globally.
Sister vessels, the Harkand Da Vinci and Harkand Atlantis are state of the art dive support vessels featuring 18-man saturation diving systems. The 115.4m vessels can accommodate 120 personnel, have 140t active heave compensated main cranes and Super Mohawk ROV spreads.
