Offshore staff

ABERDEEN, UKHarkand has completed an offshore inspection, repair, and maintenance (IRM) campaign for BP Trinidad and Tobago (BPTT).

This involved use of the diving support vessel Harkand Da Vinci and the company’s new hyperbaric rescue facility established last August in Chaguaramas on Trinidad’s northwest peninsula.

The IRM scope included deadleg inspection of BPTT offshore assets, pipeline intervention, caisson repair works, platform and pipeline clamps installation and inspection, and recovery of a caisson section.

Harkand provided services that included saturation and surface diving, ROV, survey, inspection, and project management and engineering.

The DNV-classed Harkand Da Vinci is equipped with a 140-metric ton (154-ton) active heave compensated crane, an 18-man twin bell saturation diving system rated to 300 m (984 ft) water depth, a three-man wet bell, and a two-man surface diving system.
