MSI completes deployment of large metocean mooring array offshore Tanzania
MSI is pleased to announce the award of a major metocean contract and the subsequent successful deployment of a large metocean mooring array offshore Tanzania for Shell (formerly BG) With water depths ranging from 53m to 2,620m, the array comprises 2 AXYS Technologies WatchmateTM metocean buoys as well as 12 subsea moorings, measuring waves, currents and water quality parameters. The project is expected to last 12 months and the data will be used as input to engineering design of surface and subsurface structures.
Extensive preparations in both South Africa and Tanzania ensured that all operations were conducted to MSI and the client’s high QHSE standards, with zero HSE incidents recorded during the offshore campaign in late February / early March 2016 (totalling nearly 3800 man hours). Deployment was conducted using the RK Offshore vessel Greta K, which had a second crane fitted and was modified in Cape Town specifically for this operation.
