In October 2018 Seaonics signed a contract with Odfjell Drilling on a delivery to the rig Deepsea Nordkapp. The delivery consists of a complete electrical handling system that enhances load operations up to 90 tons of so-called “X-mas trees”. The delivery also provided a full training simulator for preparation and passage of critical operations. In addition, operator training and courses will be executed. From start of detail design to successfully completion of first offshore job, eight months passed.
Stig Espeseth, Managing Director at Seaonics comments: "We greatly appreciate the trust that was placed in us by awarding us the work on the development of such an important component of the rig. Odfjell has been pushing to streamline this type of operation and at the same time have had a strong focus on high security. This system increases the functionality of single drawwork rigs and closes the gap to the most effective rigs in the market."
The equipment was delivered to the rig April 1st this year. Deepsea Nordkapp performed its first job using Seaonics handling system to pull 2 off X-mas trees in the North Sea in June. The operation was safely executed and successfully completed. The job was completed within 24 hours, and the feedback from customer, Odfjell Drilling, and field operator is good.
