One Million+ Contract Win for M² Subsea on World’s Longest Pipeline
M² Subsea has secured its first contract award which is valued at more than one million Euros. The project will see the firm supplying the Go Electra vessel, ROVs and personnel to support survey work on the world’s longest subsea pipeline system.
The company has been sub-contracted by Next Geosolutions, an independent geoscience and engineering service provider, to deliver the campaign in the Baltic Sea for the Nord Stream 2 project. Next Geosolutions was appointed to carry out unexploded ordnance identification (UXO) surveys on the two new pipelines. The campaign for Nord Stream 2, an extension of the world’s longest pipeline, will be undertaken in an area noted for munition discoveries following the end of World War II.
To support the 90-day project on the Nord Stream 2, M² Subsea has signed its first charter agreement for the multipurpose support vessel (MSV), the Go Electra, which recently successfully completed its first five-year class inspection. The scope of work will be project managed from Aberdeen and will see the MSV deployed from Hanko in Finland, and supported by fifteen of M² Subsea’s personnel, who will carry out the UXO identification work utilising a Triton XLX 2 Work Class ROV and a Mohican 5 observation/inspection class ROV from the firm’s fleet of 28 assets.
The Nord Stream twin offshore pipeline system runs from Russia to Germany and measures 1,244km in length.
