Hallin's 'New' Vessel Goes Straight to Work

Singapore, (Apr. 30, 2010) — With the ink barely dry on the purchase agreement, the latest recruit to the Hallin fleet, the Penrith, has started work on a new contract.

The one-year-old, DP2, offshore support vessel is equipped with an air diving system, two inspection class ROVs, divers, operators and crew, and has commenced work offshore Indonesia.

Working for PT Pertamina Hulu Energi ONWJ Ltd, Hallin is tasked to carry out the inspection, repair and maintenance to subsea infrastructure and structures.

The $6.5-million contract will last for more than three months, and project management will be carried out from Hallin's offices in Jakarta.

Rik Zwinkels, Hallin East Division's Managing Director, said, "We are pleased that the Penrith is starting its new life with an excellent contract that builds on Hallin's success offshore Indonesia and our investment in our office in Jakarta.

"Being able to put together a package of all Hallin-owned assets and staff means we can react quickly and be flexible to ensure we exactly meet the client's requirements for pretty much any project."
