Remedial Offshore builds new vessel type ///

Elevating Support Vessel (ESV) technology provides step-change improvements in vessel reliability and offshore support capabilities, resolving logistical deployment issues that have plagued offshore well servicing for years. By providing an elevated work platform with high deck-load capacity, the proprietary ESV approach makes complex well intervention and/or workovers feasible in a safe operational work environment. Remedial Offshore’s innovative concept meets environmental (wind and wave) criteria and is targeted for remedial activities in mature offshore oil and gas fields. While little of the technology is new, innovation comes in its configuration. The industry understands that jackups are expensive, yet more capable than liftboats, workboats or barges for heavy well intervention. This new concept offers versatile capabilities with an electric workover package (250 t/227 metric ton (mt) derrick), a large open deck (~14,000 ft2/1,300 m2), and an integral high-capacity (308 ton/280 metric ton) pedestal crane mounted on a moveable substructure, Fig. 1.
