Maersk Installer completes McDermott work off India
Thursday, Mar 01, 2018

Maersk Supply Service has successfully completed the first contract for its Stingray-class newbuild subsea support vessel with Maersk Installer.

Maersk lnstaller joined the project in January 2018, supporting the Vashishta development off the East Coast of India. This is part of an ongoing development project by India’s oil and gas exploration and production company, Oil and Natural Gas Corporation.

The contract utilised the Stingray's advance 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 results was a successful subsea installation campaign for the Vashishta development.

“This project is an important landmark for Maersk Supply Service, being the first opportunity to showcase the Stingrays’ unique capabilities. We were able to provide McDermott an efficient solution that avoided double handling of the jumpers,” said David Lofthouse, head of Commercial Asia-Pacific.
