Hallin Marine has announced the completion of the build of its latest Saturation Diving System (SAT-08).
The fully classed 12-man system was built in-house by the company in Singapore and has been completed on time and within budget.
SAT-08 will immediately be put to work following completion of its test programme at the end of this month.
Hallin has been awarded a US$2.5 million contract from major offshore construction contractor Helix Energy Solutions Group and will deploy the new system on board the Helix operated vessel Olympic Canyon in support of field installation work offshore India.
Hallin Marine will provide the Saturation Diving System and specialist diving personnel to support the subsea construction activities in water depths to 150m.
Work is due to commence next month and continue for a contract period of seven months, with potential options to extend thereafter.
The diving system and diving operations will be managed by Cal Dive International Inc. (CDI) on behalf of the Houston based Helix Energy Solutions Group. Helix is the majority shareholder of CDI.
