Danish OSV owner steps outside of the box

first_imgWith a significant oversupply and reduced long-term demand outlook for offshore support vessels in the oil and gas sector, a Danish offshore shipowner is turning to other sectors to keep its fleet busy.Denmark’s Maersk Supply Service, has now teamed up with DeepGreen Resources to recover polymetallic nodules from the Clarion Clipperton Zone of the Pacific Ocean.DeepGreen is advancing the NORI Area D Project  through its wholly owned subsidiary Nauru Ocean Resources Inc. The NORI D Project is conducted in cooperation with the Republic of Nauru and advancing the project involves completion of key environmental and engineering milestones.As part of the NORI D Project, Maersk Supply Service has committed one Anchor Handler Tug Supply Vessel and one Subsea Support Vessel for a total of five marine campaigns during the period 2017 through 2019.The AHTS vessel will support environmental studies of the seabed reaching a water depth of 4000+ meters and the SSV will be utilizing its deck capacity as well as crane capabilities for testing the nodule harvester prototype. Maersk Supply Service’s service contribution of approximately $25 million will convert to DeepGreen common shares.During the Campaigns, DeepGreen’s offshore team will undertake baseline studies required to complete a comprehensive Environmental Impact Assessment.DeepGreen will also collect polymetallic nodules for metallurgical test work and undertake trials of its nodule harvesting technology. The environmental studies of the seabed will make use of Maersk Supply Service’s specialized assets built for deep water operations and expertise for ultra-deep water subsea operations.Steen S. Karstensen, Chief Executive Officer of Maersk Supply Service, states, “Maersk Supply Service appreciates this unique opportunity to partner with DeepGreen Resources. We believe DeepGreen is well positioned in the seafloor minerals industry and I am confident that Maersk Supply Service’s deep-water offshore expertise and Integrated Solutions services will enable us to significantly contribute to the success of this endeavour.”“DeepGreen has secured a strong offshore partner that shares our vision for the recovery of cleaner base and strategic metals from polymetallic nodules in the Clarion Clipperton Zone,” said Keith Calder, Chief Executive Officer, DeepGreen Resources Inc.last_img read more

First lift for J D Neuhaus 100 tonne hoist

first_imgThis powerful hoist is one of the latest pieces of heavy duty lifting equipment recently added to the J D Neuhaus hire range, and is believed to be one of the largest air driven hoists available for hire in Europe. It complements an extensive range of fully Ex rated JDN hoists, with lift capacities from 250 kg up to 100 tonnes, now available from the rapidly expanding hire fleet at the recently opened J D Neuhaus service centre in Aberdeen.The important operation of lifting a furnace from a dedicated low-loader unit within the live area of the St Fergus gas terminal was undertaken by Enermech Limited, a specialist lifting company who have headquarters in Aberdeen (pictured below). The St Fergus terminal processes gas from over 20 North Sea fields and is responsible for transporting offshore gas to shore, receiving the gas onshore, processing the gas to National Grid specification, delivering the gas to shippers and ensuring a balance between supply and demand.The lift site within the terminal was in close proximity to gas pipes which carry up to 20 percent of the daily gas supplies required for the UK. Mobile cranes were not permitted in the live area, so a pre-manufactured lifting frame was supplied to support both the hoist and the load. After suitable positioning within the plant, the lift, transfer and positioning of the furnace was safely and successfully carried out, providing a cost effective solution to the task in hand.Arthur Hedley, managing director at J D Neuhaus UK commented: “The Profi 100 TI (pictured below) hoist is proving to be a very desirable addition to our rental fleet which is now being utilised on a global basis and has also recently been strengthened by the addition of a further 40 units, including four 50 tonne, plus eight 25 tonne hoist units.” The Profi TI air operated hoists available in the hire fleet are all fitted with top suspension hooks with optional manual, reel chain and motorised trolleys available for conversion to overhead rail mountings to accommodate lateral load transfer movements.Furnace installation at the St Fergus gas terminal, with a J D Neuhaus 100 tonne hoist taking the strain Profi 100 TI air operated hoist from J D Neuhaus with a 100 tonne lift capacity, available on hirewww.jdneuhaus.co.uklast_img read more
