Hallin Marine secures NOPSEMA Safety Case for SOV Windermere

Friday, Feb 15, 2013

Hallin Marine Australia, a Superior Energy Services company, announces that it has secured Vessel Safety Case acceptance from the Australian National Offshore Petroleum Safety and Environmental Management Authority (NOPSEMA) for its subsea operations vessel Windermere. This approval enables the vessel to operate in Australian Commonwealth waters carrying out subsea (diving and ROV) and offshore support operations in circumstances where a Vessel Safety Case is a pre-requisite.

The Windermere also has Safety Case approval from the Western Australian Department of Mines and Petroleum for any operations undertaken in state territorial waters (within the 3 nautical mile limit).

Commenting on the acceptance of the NOPSEMA safety case, Rik Zwinkels, Managing Director of Hallin East observed, “This is a major step for our Australian operation as it allows us to execute the next step in our growth strategy in that market, which involves locating the Windermere as a core Australian asset. Our clients in Australia have been very supportive of our plans to bring the Windermere to Australia and we are looking forward to a long and productive relationship.”

Fully IMCA compliant, Hallin’s SOV Windermere is equipped for well servicing, inspection and construction diving as well as remote-operated submersible vehicle support. Capable of accommodating 120 personnel, the 80 x 77 metre vessel incorporates a helicopter landing deck, an active heave compensated crane capable of working up to 1500 metres water depth, a 15-man saturation diving system with a three-man diving bell, which is launched through a moon pool.
