Oslo-headquartered TMC Compressors has been hired to deliver a marine air system for a reel lay vessel being built by Royal IHC for Subsea 7.
The work will see TMC carry out a complete system for the vessel, with the equipment to be shipped from TMC’s base in Norway to Royal IHC in the Netherlands.
The value of the contract has not been disclosed.
Once complete, the vessel will be able to install complex flowlines from shallow waters to depths of up to 3,000 metres.
Delivery is scheduled for early 2020.
Hans Petter Tanum, director sales and business development, said: “Lower overall cost but improved reliability is very much the expectation amongst oil services and energy companies today.
“I believe that is what led Royal IHC to go for compressors that are specially designed and built for marine applications. We look forward to supporting them at this project.”
