Triple Presentation and Vessel at OI 2012 - 14/02/2012
The three UK companies Osiris Projects, Bibby Maritime and Bibby Marine Consultancy have confirmed that they will be sharing a stand at Oceanology International, to be held from 13th to 15th March 2012 in London, UK, to support the presence of specialist semi-SWATH coastal survey vessel Bibby Tethra.
Bibby Marine Consultancy is a new division of the Bibby Line Group, drawing on Bibby's maritime history and ship management experience to provide a comprehensive range of technical and specialist services. It is anticipated that their expertise will be of particular interest to OI attendees, offering services and advice related to all elements of marine based activity, including dynamic positioning training and consultancy, planned maintenance consultancy, marine accident investigation, and insurance advice and claims support.
Bibby Maritime has worked closely with Osiris Projects since the development and launch of the 27.5m Bibby Tethra, providing financial support for the project in the height of the credit crisis in 2009. Launched in 2011, Bibby Tethra provides an effective platform for the investigation of site conditions in challenging marine environments, and to some extent was designed to deal with the demands of Round 3 offshore wind projects. A number of features are offered for a vessel of her size, including Dynamic Positioning (DP1), dual propulsion systems and comfortable air-conditioned accommodation for up to sixteen. The vessel is permanently mobilised, and can accommodate a full geophysical, ROV and geotechnical arrangement up to 150 miles from a safe haven for a maximum duration of 12 days.
For Osiris Projects, the vessel solidifies their positioning as a key survey contractor to the European offshore renewables sector, and the firm recently undertook an offshore wind farm cable route survey for TenneT Offshore in the German Bight region. The 2012 show presents an opportunity to showcase the capabilities of the vessel to the wider industry.
The company's shared stand is positioned close to the vessel demonstration area on stand P600.
