GMC awarded North Sea caisson construction work

Offshore staff

READING, UKGMC has won two further caisson fabrication contracts from North Sea operators.

These involve use of the company’s multi-tooth connector, specifically designed for replacement caisson applications.

The company claims its offshore handling and installation method offers numerous advantages, namely:

  • Eliminates offshore caisson welding
  • Safe and efficient fabrication and installation methodology
  • Reduces installation time to a minimum
  • Cost-effective solution compared with conventional installation methods.
  • Extends the life of aging assets.

GMC expects to mobilize a full offshore installation package including all tools, hydraulic power packs, and personnel during 1Q 2017.
