What was initially thought to be an inspection turned out to be one of the most extensive projects in 2014 for Otech Norway.
After mooring the Petrojarl FPSO Knarr at Aibel several weeks of complex, deep surface diving operations was initiated, including testing of turret mooring system. Planning together with Aibel, DOF Subsea and Teekay resulted in high focus of performing safe diving at 30 meters depth several weeks following NORSOK U-103.
“Great to see that investment in nitrox and hotwater system can give such increased efficiency” was the short comment from our Founder Odd Tveit in December.
In the cold waters of Norway, the project really verify the benefits of hot water suits and use of Nitrox as breathing mix providing maximum bottom times.
