Bintang Subsea Myanmar has completed their first Air Diving operations from an offshore installation in Myanmar. The client had a requirement for cleaning off marine growth in the splash down to -15m. The challenge of the job was the scope of work was very short for a platform that was very remote from ports that berthed DPII dive support vessels that would normally do such work.
Both the cost and the time to mobilise a vessel to site became prohibitive relative to the very short time required for Diving operations.
The solution to the challenge was to mobilise one of Shelf Subsea’s Air Diving Systems to the platform. Then install it, test it, and execute the diving from it.
The success of performing a project like this depends on careful pre-planning and pre-engineering. Once the Air Dive system is at site, there is no opportunity to significantly change, modify, or bring extra parts to the delivered system and tool sets. Close attention was given to General arrangement and footprint, installation logistics, deck loading limits, clearance for the LARS system, baskets management, and sea fastening.
We are proud to say the teams excellent planning lead to a job done right: first time, on time, on budget, and most importantly- incident free.
