M2 Subsea, Harvey Gulf Marine Form GOM Service Alliance
M2 Subsea, an independent provider of ROV services, has formed an alliance with vessel operator, Harvey Gulf Marine International, to provide subsea ROV services in the Gulf of Mexico.
M2 Subsea’s ROVs will be used on board Harvey Gulf’s DP2 survey support vessel, the Harvey Bronco. The offshore supply ship will focus on the survey and inspection market and will be equipped with M2 Subsea’s 150HP Triton XLX34 ROV system.
The Triton is a heavy-duty work-class ROV rated to 3,000 m depth and will be used for inspections and light intervention activities. The system comprises a top-hat tether management system, a survey junction box, and auxiliary hydraulics.
Mike Arnold, M2 Subsea CEO, said, “The Harvey Bronco is a significant milestone for us as we continue to build on our successful vessel opportunities in the US and further enhance our overall service provision.”
“This alliance complements our existing fleet of multipurpose support and light construction vessels, enabling Harvey Gulf to offer a broader range of services and superior performance to all other Jones Act vessel operators in the Gulf of Mexico,” Harvey Gulf Chairman and CEO Shane Guidry said.
The Harvey Bronco will be ported at the company’s operation yard in Port Fourchon, Louisiana, and available for immediate work. It is due to be deployed this month to conduct an underwater inspection in lieu of dry-docking project.
