Osbit to construct well intervention tension frames

Offshore staff

BLYTH, UK – Osbit Power has secured additional facilities at the Port of Blyth in northeast England.

The company will use these on a 12-month basis to manufacture three sets of intervention tension frames (ITFs) for three new Helix well intervention vessels.

Each system will weigh 100 metric tons (110 tons) and will be more than 20 m (65.6 ft) tall.

Osbit claims the equipment will provide a safer working environment to conduct coiled tubing and wireline operations.

Each ITF will feature three platform levels for personnel to perform operations using dedicated skidding systems.

The first two systems will be delivered to Germany for installation on the Siem Helix 1 and 2 vessels, while the third will be shipped to Jurong shipyard in Singapore where Helix’s Q7000 vessel is under construction.
