Maersk Supply Service has won an integrated FPSO tow and mooring installation project for an operator in the North Sea. The work scope includes project management, engineering and offshore execution involving six anchor handling tug supply and subsea support vessels. Maersk will provide site preparation, installation of pile anchors, tow of the FPSO and final hook up operations.

According to the company, this is the fourth large moorings project it is delivering since its announcement to expand and offer integrated solutions back in Nov. 2016, adding project management and engineering in addition to its in-house fleet of more than 40 vessels.

“Last year we successfully carried out the tow and installation of the Ailsa FSO for the Culzean field,” said Olivier Trouve, Head of Integrated Solutions. “This was an important opportunity for us to showcase our capabilities in providing turnkey solutions to the market. The synergies gained from combining the role of vessel owner with project contractor to deliver our solution from one unified team exceeded our expectations and enabled us to meet demanding targets on scheduling, cost, and of course safety. We look forward to continuing to build on this track record within the UK sector.”

Maersk is a provider of marine services and integrated solutions to the energy sector worldwide with a large fleet of anchor handling tug supply vessels and subsea support vessels. The company has an international staff of approximately 1100 offshore and 250 onshore people.
