IKM Subsea Singapore signed a contract with PTTEPI for their appraisal campaign offshore in Myanmar.
IKM Subsea will be providing a Merlin WR200 electrical propulsion system together with a BOP intervention tool and an IKM Technology designed and built diamond wire cutter for this project onboard the rig.
This marks as IKM’s second deepest dive in South East Asia as the water depth ranges from 200mtrs to 2000mtrs.
“This award definitely boosts IKM’s ROV utilization for 2018/19. With ongoing projects with SolstadFarstad, the IKM designed, built and operated Merlin WR200, shows advance electrical propulsion systems being a more reliable choice” says Ruben Subramaniam, IKM Subsea’s Business Development Manager.
“The hybrid electrohydraulic technology provides clients with more uptime with numerous contingencies while reminding us that IKM have developed a fail proof mechanism for continuous dive time. Knowledge sharing, continuous improvement and team work are the key elements for IKM Subsea’s wining milestone projects over these years” adds Ruben Subramaniam.
Mahesh Govindan, the Managing Director for IKM Subsea Singapore says “This contract award is an indication of how the company has grown over the years to be one of the leading ROV operators in the region. It further enhances the already impressive track record we have achieved”.
