Successful Completion of a Subsea Project

The best feather-in-the-cap for Hydropro Pte. Ltd. came in the biggest project to- date this year: To do a subsea hose replacement for a renowned oil and gas company.

Completing the project of the SBM lantern hose and floating hose replacement within the stipulated months came with another distinction: No incidents, no lost time and no injuries.

Under a managed-risk and high-pressure environment, the challenging assignment comprised two subsea Chinese lantern hoses on the SBM (Single Buoy Mooring) off the Straits of Singapore, which included the removal and installation of the topside floating hoses where crude is discharged from the ship. The SBM is connected to a 1.5 km undersea pipeline on the seabed which runs towards the Refinery.

Given Hydropro Pte. Ltd.’s position as a leading regional subcontractor for offshore construction projects, Director Edwin Tan summed up the success to strict adherence to planning in safety, efficiency and timeliness.

He said: “We are honoured to be trusted to undertake this high-pressure assignment. The work standard and equipment were compliant to OGP411. The multiple dives were made with zero lost time or incident.”

“We are honoured to be trusted to undertake this high-pressure assignment. The work standard and equipment were fully compliant to OGP411. The multiple dives were made with zero lost time or incident.”

– Edwin Tan, Managing Director

In early December, when Hydropro was engaged as the approved diving contractor, close to four weeks of behind-the-scenes planning were done and in February 2019, a dedicated management team set about the assignment, working round-the-clock. The teamwork from the engineering support, dive teams, Offshore Construction Manager, Project Engineers, Marine Specialist, QHSE Engineer, dive superintendent and supervisors and divers, working in two shifts over a 24-hour operation was “close to perfect”, says Mr. Tan.

He adds: “Moving forward, Hydropro worked seamlessly to complete the task in the most efficient method possible, with no major issues arising even under a high pressure, controlled risk environment.

The ultimate secret to success was the combination of experienced personnel and detailed planning which proved to be the key to minimizing the risks involved, so that if something unexpected occurs, it can be dealt with as a matter of routine.

Mr. Tan says: “You can have the fanciest equipment in the world but if it’s not used in the right way – or if you don’t have highly-skilled personnel – then you won’t get anywhere.”

Hydropro completed the challenging project in good time, continuing its consistent track record for astute planning in safety, efficiency and timeliness.

Additional Vessel to Hydropro’s Growing Fleet

“Hydropro 5” will be the fourth in our fleet, the biggest being “Hydropro 1”, which is a state-of-the-art diving support vessel which can get to the high seas.”

– Francis Ong, Operations Manager

As the diving industry becomes more demanding and challenging, Hydropro has added a 17m Aluminum fast dive support boat, “Hydropro 5”. Currently being built in Indonesia, the vessel is a twin-engined, twin-generator workboat, and can accommodate 12 crew on board.

“There is a wide-open deck space in the 17m boat and we will be building an SRP dive system onboard. “Hydropro 5” will be the fourth in our fleet, the biggest being “Hydropro 1”, which is a state-of-the-art diving support vessel which can get to the high seas.” Hydropro Operations Manager Francis Ong said. The aluminum back-drop also has added advantage, compared to the wooden or steel boat, as it requires less maintenance according to Mr Ong.

Likely to be ready in last quarter of the year, “Hydropro 5” distinctly offers more proof of the company’s commitment to meet the highest recognized industry standards and a safe working platform for the divers.
