Protexa has awarded a topsides, subsea and accommodation support services contract to Dubai-based Telford Offshore.
Under the terms of the contract, Telford 31, a multipurpose offshore construction vessel, will be used at several platforms Protexa is working on in Mexican state oil company Pemex’s Litoral de Tabasco and Ku-Maloob-Zaap oil fields in the Gulf of Mexico.
Capable of shallow and deepwater operation, Telford 31 has 1,300 m² of deck space with a load of 10 tonnes/m² and a 400-tonne active heave-compensated deepwater crane.
The vessel can accommodate 408 people in 129 one-bed, two-bed and four-bed cabins and has a conference room, offices, a cinema, a gym, recreation rooms, an internet café and a hospital.
“We are very pleased for the repeated confidence of Protexa in our teams and in the versatility of our fleet of modern DP3 vessels,” said Telford Offshore chief operating officer Duncan MacPherson.
Telford Offshore was formed in February 2018 following the acquisition of four multipurpose offshore construction vessels from the Sea Trucks Group.
The Telford Offshore fleet all have DP3 dynamic positioning designations and permament heave-compensated walk-to-work systems.
