Pipe-lay Positioning Support - 31/01/2013


Offshore survey company UTEC has consolidated its presence in the Middle East completing a significant contract for a major international pipelay contractor. The UAE (Dubai) project involved UTEC supporting the DP pipelay vessel in extremely shallow water providing enhanced USBL methodologies.

The company also provided survey support services on two additional DP vessels which provided diver support and remedial services to the pipelay vessel.

This is the second year in succession that UTEC has provided support to the contractor in the region.

UTEC's Global Sales and Marketing director Trevor Hughes commented: “Based on our prior year’s performance the contractor as well as the end client has UTEC’s experience in supporting pipelay activity in harsh acoustic environments, by developing procedures and redundancy alleviating risk from the project.”
