SEPTEMBER 6, 2012 —DOF Subsea's DP2 Construction Support Vessel Skandi Hawk, delivered earlier this year by India's Cochin Shipyard, continues to keep busy. It will be the offshore work platform for a 90 day contract just awarded DOF Subsea to conduct seabed geophysical and geotechnical investigations in the South Pacific region. The contract includes an additional four 30 day options.
Skandi Hawk was also deployed as the offshore work platform for the first scope of work, completed last month, for a three year Master Services Agreement contract awarded DOF Subsea Australia by Eni JPDA 06-105 Pty Ltd for the Inspection, Monitoring, Maintenance and Repair (IMMR) Services associated with the operation of the Kitan field in the Joint Petroleum Development Area (JPDA) of the Timor Sea.
Project management and engineering will be executed from DOF Subsea's Perth and Singapore offices with an emphasis on maximizing the Timor-Leste content.
The 88.1 m x 19.0 m Skandi Hawk is a modern DP2 Construction Support Vessel of STX PSV 09 CD designed for safe and efficient offshore operations, specifically to support field development. The vessel is capable of providing a broad range of construction support activities worldwide and can work as a CSV for construction, inspection and subsea survey as well as more regular PSV activities. Operating capabilities include good deck and under deck capacities, accurate positioning and station keeping qualities, both work class and observation class ROVs.
