Hallin Marine, a Superior Energy Services company, announces the award of its latest subsea pipeline repair project off the African west coast. Working on behalf of a major oil company, Hallin is providing overall project management and engineering, the subsea operations vessel (SOV) Ullswater, repair equipment plus a saturation diving team, to support the urgent repair of a 20 inch water injection pipeline offshore Malongo, Angola. The contract was awarded following successful projects previously completed by Hallin in offshore Angola.
Mike Arnold, Managing Director of Hallin West comments: "This is a typical project for our West Africa project team and shows the effectiveness of our specialist-designed SOV Ullswater for this type of project. The vessel is strategically placed for work in West Africa as part of our ongoing commitment to the region."
A recent addition to the Hallin fleet, Ullswater is an ultra-modern SOV incorporating an integral 15-man saturation diving system. With a length of 78 metres and a 20.4 metre beam, the vessel incorporates DP2 dynamic positioning and can accommodate up to 120 personnel.
