DREDGING ASSISTANCE

Work performed

The Jif Helios was first chartered by SAIPEM to provide Dredging assistance. Vessel’s deck was packed with the dredging spread and a TLQ (Temporary Living Quarter) to accomodate the 7 workers froms SAIPEM.

SAIPEM then extended several time the contract in order to perform cable pulling operation from shore, survey and supply run for the other vessels of the field. An initial contract of 15 days became a 6 month contract, and allowed to build strong confidence with the client and showcase the versatility of our team & vessel.

LESSONS LEARNT

Tricky to work in Egypt, due to peculiar « business practices » with local players. SAIPEM’s project management was undersized and happily accepted & recognized our expertise & advices. There is room for cross selling on this kind of services.
