Anchor Handler Tug Supply Vessels (AHTS)

  • Rig moves – Tow rigs , platforms and barges that is not self-propelled
  • Anchor handling – anchoring platforms at new spots when moved
  • Supply of dry bulk, mud and other drilling fluids, food, containers, water, chemicals, etc.
  • Cargo on deck in containers and under deck in tanks
  • Vessels capacity is typically measured in bollard pull, Break Horse Power (BHP) and winch capabilities
  • AHTS`s are needed during the entire lifetime of an offshore oil field (exploration-, installation-, production- and decommissioning phase)

Subsea Construction Vessels (SSCV)

  • The services are performed by advanced, dynamically-positioned vessels designed and equipped for deep water construction. The services are monitored by ROV and includes:
  • Pipeline construction and maintenance incl. lay of rigid and flexible pipes
  • Flexible riser installation
  • Bottom trenching
  • “Package” lifts and deployment
  • Reeled flow line installations
  • Salvage and decommissioning
  • Umbilical, jumper, flying lead and manifold installation

Live Fish Carriers (LFC)

  • Live fish transport in closed valves combined with both refrigerated seawater system and UV technology
  • Fully equipped/close valve vessels represent a unique transportation concept where the fish is transported directly from the net cages to the processing facilities in a closed environment
  • Sea lice treatment technology
  • Unique fish handling system
  • Environmentally friendly ship concept; low fuel consumption, reduced use of chemicals
  • The market for LFC’s is growing along with the global fish farming industry. The salmon farming industry has increased focus on biosecurity, fish welfare and fish quality. This, combined with new and stricter regulations will require renewal and modernization of the global LFC fleet
  • There is a total of 68 LFC’s in the North Sea with a combined capacity of ~65 thousand m3
