Swiber hires Harkand for Mexico work

Harkand has secured a $5 million contract in Mexico to perform saturation diving services in support of an offshore pipeline project for offshore construction company Swiber  Offshore Mexico S.A de C.V.

The global subsea inspection, repair, maintenance, and light construction company has recently finalised a joint venture with Arena Servicios de Mexico, a local Mexican company involved in infrastructure projects as their exclusive vehicle to deliver services in Mexico.

Harkand Arena will complete a wide ranging scope of work, including the installation of risers and expansion spools to the Ayatsil Field located in the waters of Campeche Sound. This project will be performed utilising a portable saturation diving system to be provided by Harkand onboard the client’s vessel. The project includes an option to utilise Harkand’s DSV Swordfish.

All onshore support including the project management and engineering will be performed by Harkand Arena personnel from Harkand’s new office in Ciudad del Carmen, Mexico.

Eduardo Borja, Arena’s Director said, “We have worked diligently over the past 10 years as owner’s representative for large infrastructure projects. Our interest in expanding into offshore projects brought us to Harkand, a company with a clear direction of becoming the leading IRM and light construction contractor. Harkand has the assets and more importantly the people with the knowledge, experience and reputation of providing innovative and cost-effective solutions to the complex projects this industry brings to the table.”

Managing director for Harkand North America and Africa, AJ Jain said, “This is a significant contract win for us, not only as our first under the Harkand Arena name, but it also represents our clients’ confidence in our growing diving division team and their combined experience.”
