Maersk Supply’s Stingray vessel completes first gig

Danish shipowner Maersk Supply Service has completed the first contract for one of its Stingray-class newbuild subsea support vessels, Maersk Installer, with McDermott.

Maersk Installer joined the project in January 2018, supporting the Vashishta development off the East Coast of India, Maersk Supply said on Thursday.

This is part of an ongoing development project by India’s largest oil and gas exploration and production company, Oil & Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC).

The Danish company said that the contract utilized the Stingray’s capabilities, including its stationary DP3 to work in these challenging waters, and its 400t AHC crane with large outreach to load and install rigid jumpers. The result was a successful subsea installation campaign for the Vashishta development.

David Lofthouse, Head of Commercial Asia-Pacific, said: “This project is an important landmark for Maersk Supply Service, being the first opportunity to showcase the Stingrays’ unique capabilities. We were able to provide McDermott an efficient solution that avoided double handling of the jumpers.”

The Maersk Installer was delivered to its owner by Chinese COSCO Dalian Shipyard in October 2017. The vessel is 137 meters long with a 27m beam and 1,850 m2 deck space.
