Maersk Supply Service has won a 1.5-year contract with Blue Marine Group to support Pemex from the subsea support vessel Maersk Installer, Maersk reported in a written statement emailed Tuesday to Rigzone.

According to Maersk, the Installer is the company’s second “I-class” vessel that will help Pemex to achieve its targets of increasing production and carrying out safe operations. The Maersk Implementer had already been deployed to Mexico. Maersk stated that both vessels will operate in the Bay of Campeche and perform general support duties, well stimulation and inspection, maintenance and repair services for Pemex’s platforms.

“The arrival of Maersk Installer is a significant stepping stone for Maersk Supply Service in Mexico,” noted Raymundo Piñones de la Cabada, the company’s Mexico managing director. “These two highly capable vessels allow us to expand our ambitions in the integrated solutions field locally, whether it is offering our customers well stimulation, subsea construction or FPSO installation or decommissioning.”

The Maersk Installer arrived in Mexico on Sept. 23, 2019, and began its contract following Blue Marine and Pemex inspections, Maersk noted.

“We look forward to increasing our local footprint and contributing to offshore services in the region,” concluded Piñones de la Cabaña. “We intend to positively impact the community and prepare for long-term operations here in Mexico. As part of this vision, we ensure our local seafarers are trained in operating these advanced vessels and safety management systems. Our ambition is to bring in more vessels of different types to support a growing demand for modern and highly specialized operations.”
