DIvING SERvICES OIL & GAS INDUSTRY


The shore based engineering team at Hughes SSE also designed some specialised water tight sealing bungs that were installed by the offshore dive teams whilst the structures where awaiting a cable installation. This ensured that there were no corrosion issues whilst the cables were being installed, a real forward thinking engineering feat.


The dive team also completed some internal dives inside the monopiles. During internal dive operations, a dive team mobilised onto the structure, which is a feat in itself and completed inspection dives in almost zero visibility.


EMERGENCY RESPONSE


In addition to the diving services provided by Hughes SSE they also provide Emergency Response Technicians (ERT), a number of highly skilled rope access personnel who are all advanced offshore first aiders. The personnel make up five dedicated teams that work in the field 24 hours a day split in to two 12-hour shifts. The team complete routine maintenance checks, generator refuelling, NDT Inspections and Guano Cleaning providing a cost effective solution to their clients, RWE.


ACCREDITATION


Since starting the company back in 2006 it has always been a key target to work in the oil & gas industry. Ian Hughes said “We have always strived to gain the highest levels of accreditations and we believe that the IMCA accreditation is the most prestigious in our industry. We were delighted to receive this accreditation earlier on this year and we feel all the hard work our inshore, offshore and office teams have put in over the past 9 years has paid off with the award of our IMCA membership. The hard work will continue as we push into the oil & gas market.”


It didn’t take Hughes SSE long to push into the oil & gas industry as shortly after they received the IMCA membership, they were successful in bidding for a job with Van Oord A major worldwide contractor in the industry. The works will be taking place off the Grimsby Coast line from 2015 and will be a chance for Hughes SSE to impress and once again, set the bar high for standards of subsea engineering.


Mike Bailey General Manager said about the contract “We are delighted to be awarded our first oil & gas contract so soon after becoming IMCA Members and we are looking forward to working hard with our clients to ensure that the job is completed to the highest standard on time and on budget and overall safely.”
