Australia: SMIT Subsea Signs Agreement to Provide Diving Services to TSmarine


TSmarine and SMIT Subsea Australia (SMIT), a wholly owned subsidiary of Boskalis, have entered into a long term frame agreement where SMIT will provide diving services to TSmarine.

Under the agreement SMIT will install its new state-of-the-art S4 12-man saturation dive system on TSmarine’s multipurpose offshore support vessel REM Etive.

TSmarine CEO John Edwards said the agreement built on the company’s capability to service the region’s rapidly expanding subsea sector.

“The industry is expecting a surge of developments in Australia and the alliance with SMIT Subsea will position both companies to offer integrated services to our clients,” Mr Edwards said.

“The SMIT Subsea system – which includes a hyperbaric rescue chamber and an onshore hyperbaric reception facility – is capable of working to depths of 300m.

“With the NOPSA-accepted safety case already in place for the vessel, we are confident of building on the REM Etive’s already significant track record in Australia and South East Asia.”

The REM Etive is a versatile DP2 DSV vessel equipped with onboard work class ROVs and a 140t crane.

With the SMIT dive system installed on the mezzanine deck, the vessel offers more than 500m² of clear back deck space, making it well-suited to subsea construction, inspection maintenance and repair operations for oil and gas projects.

TSmarine’s in-house project management and engineering services, supported by SMIT Subsea’s diving expertise, will ensure projects are successfully supported, managed and resourced.
