Waste management firm TWMA has been awarded two new projects with Maersk Oil UK in the central North Sea.
TWMA said on Wednesday that both projects were already underway. The first project is onboard the Ocean Valiant semi-sub rig and will run until March 2018, while the second project on the Maersk Gallant jack-up rig will be completed in July 2017.
Namely, TWMA is providing its EfficientC skip and ship solution for both projects which includes its newly developed Air Transfer System.
The Air Transfer System is a primary method for safely transporting drill cuttings from the shakers to various discharge points on board. A vacuum hopper then discharges the drill cuttings into skips, which are later transferred onshore for treatment, reuse, or disposal.
Marlene Mitchell, sales director at TWMA, said: “As a company immersed in innovation, we’re proud to continually invest in research and development which is marked by the introduction of our Air Transfer System. This new technology supports our EfficientC solutions, allowing us to offer the most effective and efficient drill cuttings management, and we are pleased to be able to utilize this solution on the Ocean Valiant.”
It is worth adding that TWMA secured a strategic partnership and substantial investment from Buckthorn Partners earlier this month. TWMA said at the time that the undisclosed funding package from Buckthorn would allow the company to accelerate global growth and further investments in research and development.
