i-Tech Services boosts vessel capability in Asia Pacific
Published by Nicholas Woodroof,
i-Tech Services, a Subsea 7 company, has signed a three-year charter agreement with MMA Offshore Ltd as it looks to enhance its Life-of-Field (LoF) services and capabilities in the Asia Pacific region.
The MMA Pinnacle, which will become the fifth vessel in i-Tech Services’ fleet, is a high specification vessel, designed and built to provide customers with a cost effective solution for offshore inspection, repair and maintenance (IRM) and light construction activities.
The custom-built, remotely operated vehicle support vessel (ROVSV) is SPS compliant with accommodation for 100 people. It is equipped with a 150 t Macgregor Active Heave Compensating crane mounted on a 1000 m2 deck. Equipped with a helideck, it is designed with on-board systems and infrastructure to allow longer periods on location.
Steve Wisely, Senior Vice President, i-Tech Services, said: “This investment to our fleet strengthens our capacity and capability whilst reinforcing our market-leading position as a fully-integrated Life-of-Field partner. It also firmly underlines our commitment to the success and expansion of our business in the Asia Pacific region which is a key strategic growth area for us.”
The agreement is for an initial period of three years with options to extend thereafter. The MMA Pinnacle will be fitted with a range of the company’s equipment for specialised subsea inspection and field support projects, ready for operation in the region from September 2018.
