Subsea 7 will provide a Diving Support Vessel (DSV) to the contract year round, as well as engineering services and project management to the combined portfolio, of the six production companies, totalling over 40 assets.

The majority of work will is expected to come from inspection, maintenance, construction and decommissioning, completed by both ROV and divers.

Both project engineering and management will be conducted through the company’s Aberdeen office.
