HOUSTON -- Phoenix International Holdings has been awarded contracts for two deepwater underwater maintenance projects in the Green Canyon area of the Gulf of Mexico.

Contract work includes the removal and replacement of six non-wet mateable tension monitoring system cables on the tendons of a TLP; removal of fairings associated with the installation of the TLP; recovery of storm debris from the top of the hull; and replacement of rigging associated with in-situ oceanographic sensors.

Proof of concept testing will be completed on the cable systems prior to project execution using in-water project mock-ups and the freshwater test tank located at the Phoenix Bayou Vista, Louisiana operations facility.

The offshore work will use a combination of surface-supplied diving and Phoenix's HARDSUIT Atmospheric Diving System.

Both projects will be supported by the DP-2 vesselM/V Anne Candies.
