Hallin Marine Lands Repair Gig Offshore Angola

Hallin Marine announced the award of its latest subsea pipeline repair project off the African west coast. Working on behalf of a major oil company, Hallin is providing overall project management and engineering, the subsea operations vessel (SOV) Ullswater, repair equipment plus a saturation diving team, to support the urgent repair of a 20 inch water injection pipeline offshore Malongo, Angola. The contract was awarded following successful projects previously completed by Hallin in offshore Angola.

Mike Arnold, Managing Director of Hallin West commented, "This is a typical project for our West Africa project team and shows the effectiveness of our specialist-designed SOV Ullswater for this type of project. The vessel is strategically placed for work in West Africa as part of our ongoing commitment to the region."

A recent addition to the Hallin fleet, Ullswater is an ultra-modern SOV incorporating an integral 15-man saturation diving system. With a length of 78 meters and a 20.4 meter beam, the vessel incorporates DP2 dynamic positioning and can accommodate up to 120 personnel.
