Subsea IMR provider, N-Sea, and subsea projects and engineering provider, DOF Subsea, have entered into a 2-year cooperation agreement to provide an Integrated Saturation (SAT) Dive Service.
The cooperation agreement reflects both companies’ strategic decision to increase their overall service offering through Saturation diving across Europe, Africa, and Mediterranean.
The principles of the agreement are set out with DOF Subsea providing the Dive Support Vessel, Skandi Achiever, whilst N-Sea will provide saturation diving resources. Project Management, Engineering and Diving Manual/Procedures will be provided through an integrated team.
N-Sea chief operating officer Roddy James says, “This Cooperation agreement with DOF Subsea reinforces N-Sea’s key objective; to fully appreciate our clients’ requirements and provide them with the safe, sound and swift service they have come to expect. The MOU allows both N-Sea and DOF Subsea to offer an integrated – and highly efficient – SAT diving service to our client; something we regard as particularly important in the context of current market conditions.”
Commenting on the agreement, Robert Gillespie, managing director of DOF Subsea UK Ltd Services says, “We are very excited to work with our partner N-Sea. Teaming up with N-Sea to provide an Integrated Diving Solution will enable us to provide yet another service offering from one of our high specification vessels, namely the Skandi Achiever. This Cooperation Agreement exemplifies both N-Sea and DOF Subsea commitment to the Subsea market and reflects our desire to collaborate with companies to the benefit of our respective organisations and clients.”
