UTEC completes major survey subcontract for McDermott

DUBAI, February 25, 2020

UTEC, a leading independent offshore and onshore survey provider, said it has completed a major survey subcontract for McDermott International, a leading provider of integrated EPCI (engineering, procurement, construction and installation)services for upstream field developments.

A part of Acteon Group, a specialist subsea services company, the Britain-based UTEC has offices in Australia, Indonesia, Singapore, the UAE, the UK and the US employing more than 350 staff.

On the work, UTEC said it had completed a consecutive as-built and post-construction, anchor-debris-clearance surveys using remotely operated vehicles (ROV) for McDermott.

For this project, the UK-based group said it had mobilised a DP2 offshore support vessel in  December last year with work- and observation-class ROVs and a nearshore survey work boat for the as-built campaign.

The anchor debris clearance campaign used the same vessel with a sub-bottom profiler, a side-scan sonar, a multibeam echosounder and a magnetometer, it stated.

On the project completion, Commercial Director (Asia Pacific and Middle East) Nadir Rahmatullah said: "We are delighted to have completed these surveys. They are a testament to the success of our 18-month strategy of investing to enter the site characterisation market in the Middle East."

"We have the technology and the operational experience for the successful delivery of projects like these. The work demonstrates our ROV and conventional geophysical survey capabilities in shallow waters, from the surface to depths of 40 m," he noted.

Nadir said: “We are extremely pleased to have worked with McDermott. This project confirms the Acteon group’s position as a trusted survey and site characterisation partner."

"At UTEC, we look forward to continuing to support our clients in the Middle East and worldwide and to working with Acteon group companies whenever they can add value to delivering customer-specific solutions," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
