Subsea lifting made easier at India gas project

27 July 2020

Unique Group, in association with its partner Cranemaster, has been awarded a subcontract for Passive Heave Compensation (PHC) during subsea installation on the ONGC KG-DWN-98/2 gas project in the Krishna-Godavari basin, India.

The Cranemaster technology, which reduces dynamic loads during the splash zone crossing, enabled the client to install mudmats more easily and efficiently. The mudmats were lowered horizontally through the splash zone, using vessel MPSV Surf Allamanda.

Prashant Shah, general manager for Unique Group’s India operations said: “Over the years, Unique Group has strongly positioned itself as a key player in the marine and subsea industry throughout the Middle East and APAC region.
“The successful completion of this project in India testifies our commitment to bolstering our subsea operations in this region. We are hopeful to work with Cranemaster on several projects over the years ahead.”

Kristian Helland, product manager at Cranemaster said: “Cranemaster products are widely used globally due to their robustness, reliability and ease of use. For demanding operations such as the one executed during this project, the product guarantees enhanced performance and control.

“We’re pleased to have worked with Unique Group, our local representative, on this project which has boosted our position in the Indian subcontinent.”
