Wintershall hires VBMS for North Sea umbilical installation

VBMS, a strategic joint venture of VolkerWessels and Boskalis, has been awarded another contract by Wintershall Noordzee B.V.

The scope of work includes the installation, burial, survey and pull-ins of an 18.5km control umbilical which connects the Ravn platform to A6-A, located in the Danish and German sectors of the North Sea. The project will be executed in July and August 2015, using VBMS’s installation vessel Ndurance.

VBMS specialises in offshore flexible installation solutions and is expanding their position in the oil & gas market with Oil & Gas Subsea/Umbilicals/Risers/Flowlines (SURF). In August 2014, the Dutch contractor successfully completed the remote platform tie-back project – platform L8-P4 to L6-B, also for Wintershall.

Arno van Poppel, CEO of VBMS said: “We’re very pleased to have signed another contract for Wintershall Noordzee B.V. With the L6-B project we have proven to be a reliable installation partner by offering cost-effective solutions and a safe and efficient execution. Our team is eager to build further on our track record for Wintershall.”
