Maersk Supply Service completes first project with newbuild SSV

Maersk Supply Service has successfully completed the first contract for one of its Stingray class newbuild subsea support vessels, Maersk Installer, with McDermott.

Maersk Installer joined the project in January 2018, supporting the Vashishta development off the East Coast of India. This is part of an ongoing development project by India’s largest oil and gas exploration and production company, Oil & Natural Gas Corporation.

The contract utilised the Stingray’s advanced capabilities, including its stationary DP3 to work in these challenging waters, and its 400t AHC crane with large outreach to load and install rigid jumpers. The result was a successful subsea installation campaign for the Vashishta development.

“This project is an important landmark for Maersk Supply Service, being the first opportunity to showcase the Stingray’s unique capabilities. We were able to provide McDermott an efficient solution that avoided double handling of the jumpers” says David Lofthouse, Head of Commercial Asia-Pacific.
