HOUSTON -- Deep Marine Technology says its 292-ft (89-m) DMT Emerald is in transit to Blind Faith in Mississippi Canyon block 650 for tie-in riser spool piece installation.
The work will be done under contract with Aker Marine Contractors.
This is part of the project of tying in two 14-in. (36-cm), one 6-in. (15-cm), and one 8-in. (20-cm) riser. The project began at the end of March and is scheduled to last approximately six weeks. Aker will use the 150 hp Triton XLS ROV onboard the vessel, as well as surface divers.
DMT Emerald is equipped with a 100-ton (91-metric ton) heave compensated, multi-purpose lifting tower, a 100-ton (91-metric ton) knuckle boom crane, and accommodations for 73.
