Harkand completes first campaign for BG in Caribbean

Harkand has successfully completed its first campaign in the Caribbean for BG Trinidad & Tobago.

The 75 day ROV subsea support services project was concluded at the start of March by the team on board Harkand’s multi-purpose vessel the Go Electra in the waters off Trinidad and Tobago.

The workscope included carrying out ultrasonic technology scans, free span pipeline rectification work, subsea control module change outs, and the supply and installation of anode pods and clamps at various locations throughout the North Coast Marine Area (NCMA) and East Coast Marine Area (ECMA) of Trinidad and Tobago.

Harkand Europe managing director David Kerr said: “We enjoy a very good relationship with BG and we are pleased to have carried out this scope of work to meet their requirements in Trinidad and Tobago, especially at this challenging time of year which is out with the usual IRM weather season in the region.

“The success of this campaign was down to the collaboration on board the Go Electra with our personnel working closely with BG Trinidad & Tobago to ensure the work was delivered safely and effectively. It is a testament to this collaborative working relationship that only five days’ weather related downtime was experienced out of the 75 day campaign.

“Our initial mobilisation was efficient with all personnel and equipment clearing customs without delay. We are also delighted to have utilised local content on this project which included ROV pilot technicians, stewards and riggers.”
