Hallin Marine breaks new ground in Myanmar
Wednesday, Dec 05, 2012

Hallin Marine, a Superior Energy Services company, announces the commencement of a four-month project at the Zawtika gas field off the coast of Myanmar. Working in partnership with a major offshore construction contractor, Hallin is providing its Penrith DP2 offshore support vessel complete with a third-party work-class remotely operated vehicle (WROV).

“Penrith will be deployed in an undersea monitoring and support role while the offshore construction contractor conducts pipelaying from a separate vessel," explains Rik Zwinkels, Managing Director of Hallin East Division. "The objective is to assemble a 28 diameter natural-gas feed extending 230

kilometres from ZPQ to landfall. As pipelaying progresses, the WROV will be used to check that all free spans are within safe limits. Excessive spans will be infilled with grout to ensure long-term stability. Penrith has large under deck bulk tanks and good deck space which are ideal for accommodating additional silos, grouting equipment and the ROV mezzanine deck, as required."

Hallin's 67 metre Penrith is powered by two MaK Caterpillar diesel engines which produce 8,000 brake horse power. The DP2 multiservice vessel is ABS classed and has fire-fighting capability. The vessel incorporates a subsea crane capable of handling a 20 metric tonne safe-working-load under constant tension. She is equipped for a wide range of offshore subsea support activity including ROV operations, air diving, and inspection/repair/maintenance support. Accommodation for up to 52 personnel is provided.
