Ocean Installer Lands Its First Australian Job
As a subcontractor to McDermott International Inc., Ocean Installer has been awarded a contract for riser installation work in Australia, the company said Jan. 26.
The job involves installing flexible risers and flowlines as well as options for additional support work. The company will use the Normand Vision construction support vessel for offshore operations beginning in second-quarter 2017.
“This is Ocean Installer’s first job in a region where we aim to establish ourselves. This is also the first job we have been awarded by McDermott,” Ocean Installer CEO Steinar Riise said in a news release. “Ocean Installer and McDermott complement each other’s capabilities in a very good way, and we believe this type of cooperation will be important going forward in what is still a challenging market.”
