HARKAND has completed an inspection, repair and maintenance (IRM) campaign for BP Trinidad and Tobago (BPTT) utilising the Harkand Da Vinci diving support vessel (DSV) and the company’s new hyperbaric rescue facility (HRF) in the Caribbean.

The IRM scope included deadleg inspection of BPTT offshore assets, pipeline intervention, caisson repair works, platform and pipeline clamps installation and inspection and recovery of a caisson section. Harkand provided a full suite of services including saturation and surface diving, ROV, survey, inspection as well as project management and engineering for the execution of the campaign.

This was also the first project for the new HRF built by Harkand in the Gulf of Mexico in August 2015. The HRF was set up in Chaguaramas on the North West peninsula of Trinidad for the campaign.

John Reed, Harkand chief executive officer said: “Securing this contract with BP Trinidad and Tobago was a significant win in the region. The work involved an array of specialist subsea services and engineering, cementing our track record in the area.”

Reed added: “This work followed successful campaigns by both the Houston and Aberdeen operation bases in the Caribbean during 2014 and 2015 for major global oil and gas operators. We are extremely pleased to add BPTT to our client base in the area.”

The IMCA compliant, DNV classed Harkand Da Vinci is equipped with a 140 Te active heave compensated (AHC) crane, an 18-man twin bell saturation diving system rated to 300 metre water depth, one 3-man wet bell and one 2-man surface diving system. The vessel was mobilised with two remotely operated vehicles (ROV) – one light work class and one inspection class ROV.
