Maersk Supply Services said it has completed the first contract for one of its Stingray-Class newbuild subsea support vessel, Maersk Installer, with McDermott.
Maersk Installer joined the project in January 2018, supporting the Vashishta development off the East Coast of India.This part of an ongoing development project by India's largest oil and gas exploration company, Oil & Natural Gas Corporation.
The contract utilized the Stingray's advanced capabilities, including its stationary DP3 to work in these challenging waters, and its 400t AHC crane with large outreach to load and install rigid jumpers. The result was a subsea installation campaign for the Vashishta development.
"This project is an important landmark for Maersk Supply Service, being first opportunity to showcase the Stingray's unique capabilities. We are able to provide McDermott an efficient solution that avoided double handling of the jumpers," says David Lofthouse, Head Commercial Asia Pacific.
