Oceaneering Selects Containental for U.S. ROV Build Project

Containental Offshore (Containental) has secured a contract worth over £500,000 to deliver bespoke units for a major ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle) build program in the United States.

Containental -- which is part of the Offshore Container Holdings Ltd (OCHL) group of companies and supplies specialist containers and baskets to the oil and gas industry -- won the contract with Oceaneering to design and deliver 65 tool room containers to Morgan City, Louisiana, where the company designs and builds its ROV fleet.

Measuring 8ft x 8ft, the tool room units have been specially designed by Containental to provide maximum volume capacity. Built to DNV 2.7-1 standard, the containers comply with all international standards and provide the client with the flexibility to relocate the units anywhere worldwide.

The contract was won and delivered in conjunction with Containental’s representative office in New Orleans, Louisiana. This is the first time that Containental has worked with Oceaneering in Morgan City, a division of Oceaneering International Inc that provides subsea products, inspection services, and Mobile Offshore Production Systems (MOPS). The company will utilize the units alongside its brand new ROV fleet at various locations across the globe.

OCHL Chief Executive, John Heiton, said, "We are very pleased to be awarded this contract by Oceaneering -- a new addition to our expanding international client base. Our aim to gain recognition as an international company is reflected in our ability to deliver ad-hoc specialist units, bespoke design containers and the supply, rental, and management of large-scale, long term contracts. Our operations in other key oil and gas locations such as Canada, USA, Singapore and Australia are helping us to communicate our enhanced offering to the industry and demonstrate that we are able to support clients’ businesses on a global basis.

"Part of our success and appeal with clients lies in our ability to tailor our solutions to clients' individual requests. The units designed for Oceaneering will provide more capacity than traditional container designs, and the internationally approved standard will ensure easy adaptability to various locations worldwide -- an important factor in today's oil and gas industry where geographical demands are continuously changing.

"Securing contracts across the globe is part of our long-term strategy to expand our worldwide presence and we hope to establish an enduring relationship with Oceaneering as part of these ambitions."

A leading provider of specialist offshore rated containers and baskets, Containental Offshore has developed an extensive fleet and range of cargo carrying units spanning approximately 50 different types, all designed to the latest DNV 2.7-1 and BS EN 12079 specifications.

From its base at the Pitmedden Road Industrial Estate in Dyce, the company is ideally placed to meet the transportation requirements of almost any offshore project worldwide.
