Innovo and Unique Group complete Middle East decommissioning
15 November 2018
Subsea and offshore solutions provider Unique Group has teamed up with engineering, construction and rental company Innovo to complete a multi-million dollar decommissioning contract for Italian global marine, oil and gas contractor, Saipem.
The project was to decommission a key offshore platform in the Middle East region.
Unique Group and Innovo team members worked together to meet the project’s requirements of providing bespoke equipment to reduce operating times and ensure a cost effective project within a very tight delivery schedule. The equipment was designed, manufactured and delivered in under four months, which in turn helped Saipem to meet the operator’s deadline for kick-off operations.
Internal and external dredging tools, diamond wire cutting tools and internal cutting tools based on abrasive water jet technology, operating at 1,500 bar, were provided for the project along with skilled operators to support the operation.
“We are very pleased to have completed this project within the stipulated timeline,” said Unique Group division manager Rakesh Bangera.
“Our aim is to be a trusted partner for our clients right from the design stage up until the delivery so that all the requirements are duly met.”
Stefano Malagodi, Innovo managing director, added: “This project exemplifies our and Unique Group’s decommissioning capabilities in the decommissioning arena, where close collaboration, innovative engineering, tight project management and safe operations are paramount.”
