Hallin Wins ROV System Contract for North Sea Operator

Hallin Marine UK Limited has received a letter of intent for the provision of vessel, remote operated vehicle and survey services to a North Sea operator. The contract was awarded to HMUK on the basis of technical capability and the ability to offer a fast response mobilization, which starts almost immediately.

HMUK Ltd has chartered the Highland Navigator in support of its Quasar Compact Workclass ROV System that is now on board the vessel with a full survey spread.

This is the company's first major Vessel/Survey/ROV package contract and has been secured with a major oil & gas operator and will involve HMUK providing intervention support for offshore oil & gas installations. The contract value is in the region of US$1.7m.

Hallin Marine UK Ltd is a wholly owned subsidiary of Hallin Marine Subsea International plc, the AIM-quoted provider of subsea solutions to the oil and gas industry.

Mike Arnold, Managing Director of Hallin Marine UK Ltd, said:

"We managed to pull together this package of our own ROV, the survey spread and the charter of the vessel in a matter of hours to help a client who found themselves in a very difficult position. While we prefer to have a little more notice we were delighted to be able to help and use Hallin's experienced team to deliver when others could not."
