Osbit Ltd has delivered GBP 3 million (USD 4 million) worth of well intervention equipment to Helix Energy Solutions, for installation on Helix’s chartered Siem Helix 1 vessel.
The equipment, weighing over 300t in total, consists of a BOP maintenance and storage tower, intervention tension frame and moveable deck. The three systems will be installed on the Siem Helix 1 ahead of its deployment in Brazil on a long term well intervention services charter for Petrobras.
A second suite of identical systems will follow later in the year for the Siem Helix 2 vessel, the company informed.
Paul Shotton, Helix’s special projects manager said: “We have worked with Osbit on multiple projects and they continue to impress us with their diligence and flexibility. Osbit is a supplier that listens to our requirements and translates them into practical, high quality and cost-effective results, time and time again.”
Dr Tony Trapp, executive chairman of Osbit, said: “The design and build of these complex systems demonstrates Helix’s confidence in us to deliver safe, innovative, integrated equipment packages to meet their strict schedules and budgets.”
