Experiences gained over a decade of serving the Norwegian waste market has provided us with a solid foundation for continued expansion, development and investment in our International Operations.
We appreciate the opportunity to execute new projects for this client. Recently, Floatel Superior was on their way to dock in Skipavika Havneterminal, located north of Bergen. SAR received a request to carry out cleaning, sandblasting and painting of six tanks for hydraulic oil on the rig.
Floatel Superior experienced challenges with cooling the oil in their tanks. The tanks carried hydraulic oil for the rigs thruster systems. The cooling is carried out with the use of salt water, and over time the tanks have worked up algae growth, condensation and rust formation. The tanks had surface damage which in the long run could affect the propulsion and control system for the rig.
The project focused on cleaning oil residues and grease from all six tanks, before our subcontractor Multi Vedlikehold took care of surface treatment with sandblasting and paint.
Floatel International was established in 2006, and provide top quality offshore Floatels for extreme conditions. They have a modern fleet, certified and compliant to international standards, designed for tough regulations and harsh environments, for short- and long-term projects all around the worlds.
“We provide reliable and high performance Floatels, designed for deep waters and hostile environments all around the world.”
Floatel Superior is a semi-submersible accommodation and construction support vessel (floatel) designed for worldwide operation with emphasis on some of the harshest environmental conditions in the world, such as the Northern North Sea.
After one year in operations, Anneleen Knutsen, the tankship, had to be cleaned. My role was to find someone capable to handle it. All the waste on the ship was settled in the bottom of the tank. Further inspections showed high levels of hydrogen sulfide, a highly flammable and hazardous substance, and three distinct layers inside the tanks in need of removal. Oil, water and solids.
This order was out of the ordinary due to size and tight timeline of 14 days. We were very impressed by SAR and how they handled the cleaning. Both we and the ship owner were very satisfied by the end result.
