DP Multicats on the move again in Egypt
For the second year running, two of Acta Marine’s DP Multicats have been called up for duties on the Zohr natural gas project in Egyptian waters.
With their ultra-shallow drafts, Coastal Discovery and Coastal Challenger will be supporting shore-end pipe lay installation activities.
“We have four pipe pulling operations planned for the coming months – all taking place in extremely shallow waters,” comments Acta Marine’s Project Manager Sinclair McWilliam. “However, these two DP Multicats can work in waters as shallow as 1.5 metres.”
Proving their worth as versatile ‘all-rounders’, Coastal Discovery and Coastal Challenger will also be deployed in anchor handling and logistics support duties. In addition, equipped with a mass flow burial tool, they will also be carrying out seabed levelling.
