OOS Tiradentes achieved a score of 100%

After one year of operation under the new contract with Petrobras we are proud to announce that, the Tiradentes achieved a score of 100% of the Performance Evaluation Bulletin (Boletim de Avaliação de Desempenho), which resulted in the rating “Excellent”.

 

Right from the start of the new contract which included additional requirements, our offshore crew, onshore support team and CIMC worked closely to accomplish this performance, unique within the Petrobras fleet.

 

Despite all challenges of the Covid-19 restrictions, especially regarding crew changes and health & safety onboard, we managed to perform at the highest level possible.

 

Special thanks to Petrobras, for the huge effort taken to continue operations safely amidst a pandemic.

 

With new standards set and expectations created, we look forward to the Tiradentes’ next 12 months of operation.

Updates on OOS Walcheren

We successfully load tested the Superfly Jib of our Offshore Mast Crane #1 on board our Semi-Submersible Heavy Lift Crane Vessel, OOS Walcheren. We used a barge as the test weight. The ballasting of the barge started at 9am in the morning and we completed the verification of the test weight with ABS Classification, Huisman and CMHI at around 11am. With the Superfly Jib installed, it allows us to lift different loads over 140 metres above sea level.

Updates on OOS Walcheren

Over the last few months, construction and commissioning activities on OOS Walcheren has made huge progress despite the challenges posed by the global pandemic. Both offshore mast cranes (OMC) were successfully installed and load tested up to 2420 metric tonnes each using a barge load. This demonstrates the strong teamwork between OOS , China Merchants Heavy Industries and Huisman.

 

Each OMC (with wires reeved) was lifted by a 3000 metric tonnes crane floating barge and installed onto the OOS Walcheren in a single lift. The entire preparation and lifting operation took less than a day to complete but would never have been made possible without a detailed pre-lift plan and precise execution by the team. This includes weeks of preparation on the drawing table, online conferencing and on site surveys to finalize the weight estimation, lifting arrangement, risk assessment and project preparations.

 

Moving forward, the vessel will be busy with outfitting her offshore mast cranes with the super fly jib in August 2020, as well as working on her interior accommodation, marine and electrical systems.

OOS International joins a global decommissioning services consortium

A global decommissioning services consortium has substantially strengthened its capabilities with the addition of a specialist heavy lift vessel-owner operator, OOS International.

 

Dutch offshore services provider OOS International joins the already successful consortium, alongside industry leaders Lloyd’s Register and Worley, providing operators with fully managed end-to-end decommissioning, from late life through to post removal monitoring.

 

By pooling their considerable experience, global footprint and now heavy lift capabilities, the consortium has added further weight to its proven ability to reduce operators’ decommissioning burden, risk and cost, all through a single interface.

 

There’s still big business in offshore decommissioning but it carries risks An estimated £67 billion is expected to be spent on decommissioning globally over the next decade (Wood Mackenzie), with approximately £14 billion in potential decommissioning commitments over the next five years across Northwest Europe alone (source: Rystad Energy ServiceCube), costs which industry and the regulator have pledged to reduce.

 

Decommissioning, for many, remains an uncertain cost burden, potentially even more so in the current climate.” says Julie Copland, LR’s Decommissioning lead. “What is certain is that, with our combined expertise, unique ability to take well operatorship and duty holdership, and now ready access to heavy lift assets, our consortium can help operators across the North Sea, Gulf of Mexico and Asia Pacific reduce the risk and cost of decommissioning whilst safeguarding their reputation.”

 

De-risking removal and disposal for operators.

 

OOS’ fleet comprises of stable and dynamic semisubmersible dual crane vessels, the OOS Serooskerke and the OOS Walcheren, each have an accommodation capacity of 750 POB and a lifting capacity of 4,400 tons in waters up to 3,000 meters depth. In addition, the TBB OOS Zeelandia is equipped with two cranes with an impressive lifting capacity of 12,500T per crane.

 

Aligning assurance, project management, and safe, fit-for-purpose removal and disposal can make decommissioning daunting,” says Léon Overdulve CEO, OOS. “We already provide full turnkey decommissioning services. Now, as part of the consortium, we can provide economies of scale, reduce duplication of effort, adopt campaign approaches and enable schedule flexibility, further reducing cost uncertainty and scope for operators.”

 

John Cox, Global Decommissioning Lead, Worley [Intecsea], says: “As a consortium, we have completed successive offshore decommissioning projects, globally, from the Middle East and Asia Pacific to North America. We’ve supported operators and regulators with decommissioning and plugging and abandonment plans and guidelines, abandonment liability and expenditure evaluations. We’re actively involved in a number of full work scope provision projects. Operators see the value of our combined expertise across the full decommissioning lifecycle, because it works.”

Award for completing another year without a Lost Time Incident

On behalf of CIM OOS Tiradentes, Mr Jose Marcio Vidal (Contract Manager OOS Brazil) received the safety award for completing another year without a Lost Time Incident (LTI) from the International Association of Drilling Contractors (IADC)

 

This award is granted to those associated offshore units which have operated 12 months without a LTI and the period runs from October 1st till September 30th the following year.

 

In 2017 the Brazilian chapter of the IADC allowed flotel and FPSO operators to participate as these offshore facilities have a lot in common with offshore drilling units and face similar offshore industry challenges. Since then OOS International has been an active member of the IADC and received two safety awards in 2018.

 

This year’s awards were presented to peers form the industry during a festive gala dinner where another year without a LTI is celebrated. In addition to CIM OOS Tiradentes other awards were given to Transocean, Ocyan and Etesco amongst others.

 

To receive this award is a recognition from the industry we work in, where safety is a must. Therefore Safety First.. Always!

Performance Evaluation of OOS Tiradentes

We are proud to announce the continuation of our high quarterly performance evaluations, presented by our client in Brazil, Petrobras. The OOS Tiradentes, our semi-submersible accommodation vessel, was graded “Excellent” with an overall score of 95.

 

With the continuation of these high statistics, we prove our consistency and dedication into unceasingly improving our services and management of assets to our client.

 

The “Contractor Evaluation and Performance Indicator” includes figures on procedures for Health, Safety, Environment and Quality (HSEQ), safety statistics for personnel (Total Recordable Frequency Rates), and daily occurrences recorded in the vessels daily reports. It is nevertheless very important that zero accidents occur, that onboard personnel mobilization disruptions are below 10, and the occurrences of system and/ or equipment failure is reduced to a maximum of 20 items within said quarter.

 

With this score we demonstrate that OOS International delivers with distinction and will continue to do so. We would like to thank all onshore and offshore personnel in the achievement of this combined effort to receive this outstanding result!

Engine Start Up OOS Walcheren

On the 10th October 2019, the engines of OOS Walcheren were started. The OOS Walcheren is currently under construction at China Merchants Heavy Industries (Jiangsu) Shipyard.

 

The OOS Walcheren is the sister vessel of the OOS Serooskerke, which is presently undergoing the final stages of commissioning before heading out for sea trials. Her expected delivery is within Q1 2020.

 

The construction of OOS Walcheren commenced on the 24th May 2018 and it has taken 16 ½ months to start up her engines, which has bettered the OOS Serooskerke record by 10 days and less man-hours. The OOS Walcheren is on schedule with a 0.19% budget overrun. Many valuable lessons were learnt from the construction of the OOS Serooskerke, and preparations were made to ensure a smooth start of the engines with all the support of the auxiliary systems completed. The engine start-up would not have been possible without the hard work and dedication of the engineering team; without STX-MAN and the conscious efforts of the production and commissioning teams, this achievement would have been inconceivable. The team has worked endless nights together, with great spirit and collaboration to make this milestone possible. The piping systems had to be thoroughly flushed out and cleaned. The electrical systems had to be systematically checked to ensure all cables were terminated correctly and safely. The ventilation systems had to be cleaned, tested and run. The paintwork of the engine room compartment was touched up. STX had to spend numerous hours on site to perform the final checks and preparations to start the engines successfully. The OOS Walcheren is equipped with a SCR system to ensure the emission meets the tier 3 requirements.

 

It has been a long journey indeed!
504 days of construction
2.5 million man-hours spent
22,000 MT of steel used
212 blocks built

 

A lot of appreciation to the team and their big achievement. We wish them continuous success for the future milestones.

OOS Walcheren successfully undocked

At 3pm (local time) on 18th July 2019, the OOS Walcheren was successfully undocked from CMHI (Jiangsu) dry dock. The undocking operation was a complicated and complex process due to the limited water depth, even though preparations for her undocking started months in advance. Compared to the undocking of her sister vessel the OOS Serooskerke, the undocking of the OOS Walcheren was quicker and more efficient, both in terms of cost and scheduling perspectives. The floodgates of the dock were opened on 16th July 2019 and the OOS Walcheren was afloat 2 days later. Along with the high tide, the OOS Walcheren was escorted out of the dry dock to the fanfare of several tug boats and a sparkling fireworks display. This marks a significant milestone for the OOS Walcheren, which has bettered the building progress record by 1 month of its sister vessel the OOS Serooskerke, compared to last year. She is now berthed alongside her sister vessel on the same quay. The OOS Walcheren will now spend subsequent months along the quayside, completing the systems commissioning as well as installation of the cranes, before she heads out offshore for her thruster installation and sea trials. Let’s us congratulate our team in China for their achievement and we look forward to the continued success of OOS Walcheren with continued zero loss time incidence on the project.
