i-Tech Services wins first contract under new vessel charter agreement

I-Tech Services’ vessel MMA Pinnacle has secured its first inspection, repair and maintenance (IRM) contract with an integrated oil and gas services company, based in Malaysia.

Following the signing of a long-term vessel charter agreement in the Asia Pacific region earlier this year, i-Tech Services’ MMA Pinnacle has secured its first inspection, repair and maintenance (IRM) contract with an integrated oil and gas services company, based in Malaysia.

The agreement comes following the signing of a long-term vessel charter agreement in the Asia Pacific region earlier this year. Mobilizing in Singapore, the MMA Pinnacle has been fitted with a range of i-Tech Services’ equipment for specialized subsea inspection and field support projects.

Namely, i-Tech, a Subsea 7 company, in May signed a three-year charter agreement with MMA Offshore for the MMA Pinnacle to enhance its Life-of-Field (LoF) services and capabilities in the Asia Pacific region.

Announcing the new contract with an unnamed client on Wednesday, i-Tech said that the broad work scope for the 30-day campaign ranges from the provision of general visual inspection (GVI) services through to changing out subsea hardware in water depths of 1,400m, using the vessel’s 150-tonne crane.

Mobilizing in Singapore, the MMA Pinnacle has been fitted with a range of i-Tech Services’ equipment for specialized subsea inspection and field support projects. This includes two 3,000m rated Centurion SP Work Class ROV systems, which are specifically designed to service deepwater projects.

James Christie, Regional Director-Asia Pacific, i-Tech Services, said: “Winning this work and then mobilizing so soon after taking control of the vessel is a major achievement for the team and demonstrates there is a real demand for our world-class services, assets and capabilities in the region.
