Welcome I am enthused to write this introduction of the latest edition of the Offshore Holland magazine and experience the growing Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference (ADIPEC) as I have returned to the Middle East for a new posting. Having been newly appointed as Ambassador of the Kingdom of the Netherlands to the United Arab Emirates, I look forward to starting off my tenure with impetus and what better way to do so than during the leading energy event of the Middle East and beyond: ADIPEC.

I look back fondly on my time in the UAE, where I lived from 1997 to 2003, as Deputy Head of Mission in Abu Dhabi, as well as Consul General of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Dubai and the Northern Emirates, respectively. During my stay in the region, ADIPEC was already a prominent event and it has grown tremendously. This year’s edition will bring together over 145,000 visitors from 139 countries and 2,200 exhibiting companies. This is another testament to the UAE’s ambition and capacity for growth. The past year marked a transition for our missions in the Gulf, launching the Dutch Connection in the Gulf: Uniting Water Energy Food campaign. We welcome the increased focus in the region on operational and resource efficiency, particularly given our strong track record and expertise, with regards to resource optimization and use. This year’s ADIPEC theme ‘Oil & Gas 4.0’, enabled by the fourth industrial revolution, reiterates this drive for efficiency. The future outlook of oil and gas is a challenge owing to many factors. In order to overcome these challenges,


OH-22.indd 4

improvements in efficiency are key; this is where Industry 4.0 can help, but also offers an opportunity for Dutch businesses and professionals to position themselves. The Netherlands has one of the biggest downstream hubs in Europe and is a global leader in oil and gas services. Its wide and longstanding experience with gas has helped hone the Dutch market’s skills, fostered its logistics supply chain services and boosted other petrochemical industries. This experience has allowed the Netherlands to adapt to the changing oil and gas landscape, and Dutch companies to innovate. This is best exemplified by the utilization of Dutch experience in the offshore oil & gas space toward offshore wind – enabling our oil & gas companies to take part and drive the energy transition. The Dutch enjoy a strong reputation and maintain a dynamic relationship with the UAE. The Netherlands’ maritime history and knowledge, as well as our pragmatism bode well with our local (and international partners) as illustrated by our bilateral trade numbers: the UAE is the Netherlands’ second

largest export market in the MENAT region, after Turkey. Furthermore, I am delighted to experience this ADIPEC in the presence of our Director General for Foreign Economic Relations, Mrs. Hanneke Schuiling, who will be visiting Abu Dhabi and the trade show on 13 November 2019. We, as well as our teams, look forward to engaging with the 30+ Holland Pavilion participants and Dutch companies exhibiting with their own booth, here in Abu Dhabi, during an eventful week. I look forward to exchanging ideas with you all in Abu Dhabi. In the meanwhile, please do not hesitate to reach out to the Embassy’s Economic Department in Abu Dhabi via and our Consulate General in Dubai via with any questions or comments regarding the energy sector and opportunities for Dutch companies in the U.A.E,

Lody Embrechts Ambassador of the Kingdom of the Netherlands to the UAE.

ADIPECs Oil & Gas 4.0

The energy market in transition As indicated by this year’s ADIPECs theme Oil&Gas 4.0, the industry is being challenged to create smarter, more sustainable, innovative solutions to fulfill our immediate, medium and long term energy needs. This is perhaps nowhere as relevant and important as it is in the Gulf. With the region so heavily reliant on its fossil fuel resources for power generation, desalination or to purchase and import food from abroad the push for greater efficiency hits beyond the bottom line. The Gulf region itself acknowledges that its approach towards natural resources needs to change. Resources are shrinking whilst demand is rapidly increasing driven by population and economic growth. A higher energy production with lower carbon emissions and a more diversified energy mix is in itself a commendable goal, but not easy to achieve. To realize such improvements and to meet economic and social ambitions, it is indispensable to approach resources challenges such as water, energy and food in an holistic way.

The Gulf is a region where partnerships and cooperation are a necessity to succeed in business.


The Gulf region is at the fore of Dutch efforts in this field and Dutch companies contribute to the transition of the energy market in a time where the industry needs to become efficient and to adapt to the changing regional needs. It is a big change – but a change that is necessary for our planet and future. This year’s theme for the ADIPEC indicates that the industry is ready to take on this challenge. The ADIPEC is one of the leading business events within the Gulf and a key event within the oil and gas industry. Exhibitions play a crucial role within the way business is done in the region. Not only are the key industry stakeholders present but exhibitions offer an easy way to maintain relationships, gage what the competition is doing, and attract the attention of local and foreign investors alike. The ADIPEC is not just a large trade show for established companies, it is also a platform for both established companies as well as startups; where all participants can be seen and heard.

The Gulf is a region where partnerships and cooperation are a necessity to succeed in business. This is why we take close cooperation so seriously. The IRO, the umbrella association consisting of more than 440 Dutch suppliers in the oil and gas industry supports the Dutch oil and gas community and helps them increase their visibility during exhibitions like the ADIPEC. In addition to the extensive and well established IRO network - with its extensive knowledge of the oil and gas market as well as its wide range of expertise and connections - the Dutch Embassies in the region and beyond play an important role in strengthening Dutch oil and gas interests. The Embassies have a broad network and take their role as connectors very seriously, especially for SME’s. They can provide introductions to governmental bodies or local partners. The Dutch Embassies in Abu Dhabi (UAE), Riyadh (KSA), Doha (Qatar) Muscat (Oman), Kuwait city (Kuwait) and the Consulate General in Dubai (UAE) are more than happy to assist you.

The Expo2020 Dubai

In the year to come, all eyes will be on the largest event in the Middle East: Expo2020 Dubai. This event, with an expected 25 million visits, will open its doors on 20 October 2020 and will run until 10 April 2021. Preparations for the Dutch participation in this mega event are in full swing. Its chosen theme: ‘Uniting Water, Energy, Food’ will be at the core of all activities, presentations and events. The Dutch Energy sector will be present in all its forms and participation within the Netherlands pavilion will create another platform to, share, learn and show the world what the Netherlands has to offer. How to connect?

The Netherlands and its missions abroad are actively reaching out to the Gulf region. Seize the opportunity to connect with us, and maximize your company’s possibilities in the Gulf region. If you want to learn more about participating in the Dutch pavilion, please do contact us and we’ll happily assist you further.

DEME Offshore subcontracted by Allseas

Baltic Interconnector offshore pipeline completed on schedule As part of the Energy Union Strategy, the EU is committed to building missing links and energy infrastructures, and ensuring that each Member State has access to several sources of gas. Integrating the Baltic Sea region with the rest of the EU’s gas system is one of the Commission’s top priorities. The EU granted the project EUR 187.5 million as investment aid.

Allseas, one of the major offshore pipelay and subsea construction companies in the world, was contracted to install the 20-inch offshore gas pipeline, with DEME Offshore as rock installation subcontractor. Apart from these pre-lay and post-lay rock placement and trenching activities, DEME Offshore was also subcontracted by


OH-22.indd 8

Allseas for the landfall constructions in Finland and Estonia. First

Of the five worksites being part of the complete project (onshore pipeline Inkoo-Siuntio and compressor station in Finland, offshore pipeline, onshore pipeline Kiili and compressor station in Estonia), the installation of the

concrete-coated pipeline in the seabed of the Baltic Sea was the first one to reach completion. The 77 kilometres long bidirectional offshore pipeline runs from Inkoo, Finland, to Paldiski, Estonia, and the installation was successfully executed by the pipelay vessel Lorelay in the spring/summer of 2019. Around 6,400 pipes constituted the undersea portion of


24-10-19 13:50

Fallpipe vessel Rollingstone.

the project, weighing 36,000 tons in total. The gas pipeline is due to be commissioned by the end of 2019 and is capable of transporting 7.2 million cubic metres of gas per day. The planned service life of the pipeline is 50 years. Risk of icing

After signing the contract in at the end of March 2018, DEME Offshore started working on both landfalls almost immediately. “This was necessary because of the risk of icing in this section of the Baltic Sea between January and May, the better weather conditions in the summer time and the schedule duration of the landfall works,” says Marro Vreys, Business Unit Manager Landfalls & Civils. On the Finnish side, the shore approach at 300 metres was relatively short because the coastline at that point rises fairly sharply. Because of the rocky nature of the surrounding material drilling and blasting was executed nearshore and further offshore. On the Estonian end, the shore approach was 1500 metres long. Also here the trench was excavated by means of a backhoe dredger from the shore to approximately 14m water depth.


Marro Vreys: “According to the planning timetable, our specialists returned to the Baltic Sea early May 2019 to maintain and clean out the trenches, before Allseas started installing the pipeline itself. On May 20 the pull in of the gas pipeline on the Finnish side took place by means of a 500-tonne linear winch. Exact one month later, once the pull wire and the gas pipeline were connected, the pull in at the Estonian side was executed as well without any problems.

As soon as the installation of the pipeline in the summer of 2019 was successfully executed by Allseas, pressure tests were carried out, followed by emptying and drying the pipe to enable gas transmission. After connecting the subsea pipe to the onshore pipelines in Finland and Estonia, DEME Offshore’s fallpipe vessel Flintstone was deployed for backfilling operations with another 80,000 tons of rock. Important milestone

Progressing with the landfall operations in the summer of 2018, pre-lay rock placement activities were executed in the Baltic Sea too. For placing the 160,000 tons of rock in a relatively tight time period, it was decided to use two fallpipe vessels, viz the Seahorse and Rollingstone. Both vessels are equipped with a custom-made rock dumping system and ROV system for subsea pipeline protection purposes. Using a gimballing rock dumping tower and fallpipes manufactured from high grade aluminium and patented couplings, the system can accurately position stones on the seabed. The rocks were sourced from a quarry near Inkoo, Finland.

“Completing the offshore pipeline work on schedule is an excellent example of the good cooperation between all parties. I would especially like to thank Allseas and the local subcontractors at both worksites for their cooperation,” says Marro Vreys. “The expertise and ambition of our personnel and partners ensured that everything is ready for gas to flow between Finland and Estonia at the end of 2019. The completion of the pipeline is one of the most important milestones in the journey towards opening the European gas market. And DEME Offshore is honoured to have been able to contribute to that success.”

Dutch government actively involved in exploration and production of natural gas

Natural gas indispensable during transition to sustainable energy sources The Dutch offshore area of the Southern North Sea remains a sea of opportunity for exploration and production of natural gas. The E&P sector in the Dutch offshore has over 50 years’ experience and will continue to remain, at the least, active until 2050. As a flexible, economically attractive back-up, natural gas has an important role to play in the Netherlands during the transition to stable, carbonneutral power generation in 2050.

The reserves of Dutch offshore natural gas amount to approximately 118bn cubic metres. Experts estimate that, in addition to this proven resource, additional resources of between 100 and 200bn cubic metres are located beneath the sea bed. The Dutch territorial waters of the North Sea


OH-22.indd 12

offer investors/operators attractive options for exploiting the potential of natural gas. Attractive, not least, because the Netherlands has a fiscal climate that is attractive for businesses that are already active in the E&P sector or are looking to move into that area.

Moreover, there is a guaranteed offtake of produced gas at market prices. The role of natural gas in the transition

The Dutch government is actively involved in the exploration and


24-10-19 13:50


production of natural gas. This involvement is under the auspices of Energie Beheer Nederland (EBN), which is wholly owned by the Dutch state. EBN’s mission is to maximise the use of energy resources in the Dutch subsurface. Eric van Ewijk, the programme manager responsible for exploration explains: “Over the years we have built up a thorough understanding of the energy resources to which we have access. We are using this expertise to make the transition to a carbon-neutral energy system possible. We see it as our mission to ‘energise’ the transition process and to gradually prepare the Netherlands for a sustainable energy future in the period leading up to 2050. However, as far as the energy transition process is concerned, natural gas is the least polluting fossil fuel, and will continue to play an important role in the next decades as a flexible and economically attractive back-up to provide stable domestic energy supply. To put this into context, 98 per cent of the 7.8 million Dutch households is currently dependent on natural gas for heating and cooking.” The economic outlook for the offshore gas sector is an important key focus area in the national energy policy of the Netherlands. Van Ewijk continues: “Annual production of natural gas in our territorial waters in the North Sea varies between 10 and 15bn cubic metres. The Dutch currently consume around 35bn cubic metres of natural gas each year, so Dutch offshore natural gas has a substantial role to play in reducing reliance on imported gas. EBN is involved in nearly all gas projects in the Netherlands as a non-operating partner. Our stake in partnerships involving investors/ operators is generally 40 per cent. We contribute to the costs and share in the returns accordingly. The returns generated go into the state finances

‘We also invest in solutions that contribute to keeping down the costs of providing domestic energy.’ Eric van Ewijk, Programme Manager EBN.

and thus benefit Dutch society as a whole.” Smart adaptations

The Netherlands is aiming to drastically reduce emissions of CO2 and is thus targeting a move to more sustainable forms of energy. As the operating arm of government policy, EBN is involved in making best use of the existing energy resources. “But the role goes further than the statutory duty to make the best and safest use of gas fields in the Netherlands,” says van Ewijk. “We also invest in solutions that contribute to keeping down the costs of providing domestic energy. A promising solution on which we are working is to use smart adaptations to make the existing gas infrastructure suitable for transporting hydrogen or biogas, for instance. The Netherlands is unique in having access to such reliable and excellently-maintained infrastructure that can store and transport gaseous sustainable energy. That is something to be cherished; something we need to be able to make use of for as long as possible.” Promising fields

As a non-operating partner, EBN

works closely with explorers for and producers of natural gas. EBN encourages and supports companies that wish to invest in value creating activities in the exploration and production of Dutch offshore natural gas. Activities resulting in economic production not only provide an acceptable investment return but provide flexibility and stability to domestic energy provision in the period leading up to 2050. Before 2025, EBN wants to be in a position to offer both our current and potential new partners an overview of all economically-promising offshore gas fields. Partnerships are also the cornerstone of the process that is helping to accelerate the energy transition in the Netherlands, another element of EBN’s core business. As the link between the public and private sector, we utilise our financial strength to bring parties together so that they can participate in innovative projects that are focused on carbon-neutral energy solutions. Partnership and collaboration is crucial to making a success of the energy transition and to making the political and social ‘wish list’ of the present into the reality of tomorrow.

Joint effort of MeeMaken companies pays off

Blue Offshore designed and delivered unique tensioner for crane vessel Blue Offshore is based in The Hague and supplies rental basket carousels and tensioners for the offshore installation, transportation, and storage of export cables, array cables, umbilicals and flexible pipelines in the offshore oil & gas industry, as well as the offshore renewable energy sector. Since March this year the company is part of the MeeMaken Group, an active Dutch venture capital company with a large global network and a strong portfolio of service companies in the offshore energy sector. The group consists of Selmers, Eager. one, KenzFigee, Alltec Lifting Systems, BeOne Development, eWorks, Blue Offshore and LiftWerx.

Earlier this year Blue Offshore and KenzFigee worked together on the design and fabrication of a tensioner for Boskalis’ crane vessel ‘Giant 7’. By joining forces the complete


OH-22.indd 14

tensioner was designed, built and tested (under Lloyd’s Register) in a record time of only 6 weeks after contract signing and installed on top of Blue Offshore’s loading tower on

board the crane vessel in Rotterdam. The rental tensioner was fabricated at the KenzFigee production facility in Zaandam, the Netherlands.

The tensioner is relatively ‘light’ in terms of power. It can approximately generate 5te tension, but for a specific offshore wind project in the North Sea it has been adjusted to an average line pull of 3te. Based on client’s requirement for a high accuracy of the regulating tension, electric drives were chosen in order to achieve this accuracy. The tensioner will be used by loading of the cables in the

basket carousel. To serve client’s needs this tensioner has special features, such as adjustable tracks. Footprint

Apart from Blue Offshore, being represented in the Dutch pavilion at Adipec, also both MeeMaken companies KenzFigee and are participating at the exhibition in the stand of KenzFigee’s sponsor NAMA. NAMA is a leading,

local business group serving the Oil & Gas, Power & Water and Industrial sectors of the UAE economy. By working closely together with NAMA, KenzFigee is working hard on the future growth of the company in the UAE economy, being a strategic area for its international expansion ambition. Not only is the Dutch supplier of innovative lifting- and hoisting solutions increasing its footprint and enhancing its local supply chain in the region from its own office in Abu Dhabi, in May this year KenzFigee also signed a partner agreement with Saudi Drill, an experienced and highly respected oil & gas enterprise whose portfolio perfectly fits this strategy. This agreement covers the representation of KenzFigee in the GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council) countries. Jan-Pieter Klaver, CEO of KenzFigee, explains: “Our office in Abu Dhabi, the energy hub for Middle East operations, is led by Sales Manager Willem Misdorp, who has a broad international experience, especially in the Middle East. The set-up demonstrates our commitment to contribute to the success of our existing and future clients in this region, by providing the best possible

Several assignments

Recently KenzFigee has successfully completed several assignments in the Middle East region. Early 2019 KenzFigee experts has executed a 6.5 meter fly jib extension on an existing KenzFigee Ram Luffing crane on board the offshore support vessel ‘Seabed Constructor’ in Dubai, while in June a fully custom-tailored offshore boom hoist crane was delivered in Dubai as well, equipped with KenzFigee’s very first remote condition-based monitoring system. The Belgium Besix Group awarded KenzFigee the contract for the replacement of the existing ringer crane on board of the self-elevating platform Rima to maximize performance in lifting capacity and speed of work. The unique feature of this lattice boom crane is that it has a large hoisting capacity of 240 tonnes compared to its own weight of only 200 tonnes and a boom reach of no less than 73 meters (with extension). Robert de Rijcke, Chief Commercial Officer, says: “This crane is also equipped with a double main winch and a split block for pile upending activities and an extra boom section of 5 meters to extend the fixed 58-meter boom. It is a state-of-the-art custom-made crane, complying with the highest quality standards with regard to operations, maintenance and safety. It is our first crane equipped with our remote condition-based monitoring system. This system enables Besix to make their day-to-day operations more efficient. It will keep control of maintenance and thus prevents interruption of operations, which finally results in increased productivity. This remote CBM system will definitely help our clients to accelerate the path to industry 4.0.” Expansion portfolio

Another goal that KenzFigee pursues is the expansion of its portfolio as a mechanical engineering supplier of industrial equipment and special machinery. Robert de Rijcke: “Our constant focus on innovation allows us to design and manufacture many more

special products. Every type of operation requires its own solution. Therefore, due to our extensive experience with tailor made systems, we can offer our equipment specifically according to any client specifications. Such as gantry cranes, surge dampers and winches. As well as the aforementioned tensioner. We have demonstrated that work can be delivered fairly quickly and of good quality. Especially when it comes to custom-made equipment that requires the use of disciplines that are also used in the construction of cranes. Hydraulics for example, or control equipment. Every piece of equipment is subjected to rigorous tests at our facility in Zaandam. These tests can be carried out according to the regulations and guidelines of any certifying authority, including Lloyd’s Register, DNV and ABS.” Amongst others KenzFigee is committed to providing the best offshore access solutions and services to enable crew and service personnel to move safely between vessels and offshore facilities. In total the company has produced three W2W offshore solutions of which two have been sold to POSH (PACC Offshore Services) in Singapore and one 3D Active Motion Compensated Gangway is installed on the OSV ‘Notus Express’ of A1 Offshore Solutions from Denmark, also having a 1-ton lifting capability and an almost zero docking pressure. The vessel is currently active in the wind sector in the North Sea. KenzFigee Services

Its diverse client and equipment portfolio has led KenzFigee to develop a full range of service, modification and upgrade programs for almost all crane types from virtually all manufacturers. Additionally, the company offers extensive refurbishment schemes that are tailor-made for specific circumstances and client preferences to ensure operability. In this respect KenzFigee recently also opened a service hub in Aberdeen, Scotland. Robert de Rijcke: “KenzFigee cranes must operate reliably under the most diverse and harsh sea conditions. Therefore we are also offering our clients a comprehensive inspection and integrity management package for their cranes and other mechanical handling equipment to unburden them from ‘cradle to grave’. Wherever their vessel, jack ups or platforms may be, we help them to keep their cranes operational.”

Signage of global cooperation agreement

Building of large-scale hydrogen storage systems Frames Group B.V., Hydrogenious LOHC Technologies GmbH and MAN Energy Solutions SE enter a close cooperation in order to build large-scale hydrogen storage systems based on the innovative Liquid Organic Hydrogen Carrier (LOHC) technology.

Hydrogen is considered as the energy carrier of the future in a rapidly changing energy market. Since hydrogen can be produced on a large scale from renewable energies, it is the ideal medium for decarbonizing the energy, mobility and industrial sectors. However, the question of efficient hydrogen distribution remains open. The LOHC technology offers a safe and efficient

solution for storing and distributing hydrogen on a large scale. The new partners are ready to meet the needs for the future hydrogen market in respect to bulk hydrogen storage and transportation. As a first step, the companies have developed systems with hydrogen capacities of 5 and 12 tons per day. Such large hydrogen processing capacities will be

crucial for the decarbonization of Europe’s energy needs. Hydrogenious LOHC Technologies is specialised in the development of the LOHC technology and thus contributes its core process know-how to the cooperation. Frames designs, builds, delivers systems and solutions in the upstream, downstream and renewable energy market and will be responsible for the overall realization of the

Frames’ renewable energy activities.

with the collaboration between Hydrogenious LOHC Technologies, MAN Energy Solutions and Frames: “With this partnership we are able to translate our customer’s sustainability ambitions into skid-mounted solutions.”

“We see an increased demand for green fuels and are investing in the development of hydrogen solutions, like electrolysers and hydrogen storage. Hydrogen is the vital link in the energy transition”, says Frans Roozendaal – CEO at Frames. “At Frames, we convert process and control concepts into skid-mounted solutions. Although the oil & gas industry has historically been the target market, we have also seen a strong expansion of our renewables activities.”

“We are very satisfied to have gained such important players from the plant engineering sector for this cooperation,” states Daniel Teichmann, CEO of Hydrogenious LOHC Technologies. “Since our technology uses the existing infrastructure for conventional fuels, it makes import and transportation of large amounts of green hydrogen, for example from Scandinavian wind parks to Central Europe, feasible. This partnership will contribute to creating a simple and efficient transport network for green energy at European and global level.”

Jordi Zonneveld, Product Specialist – Hydrogen at Frames is very pleased

“We strongly believe that the global goal to build a climate neutral

economy largely depends on the future use of green hydrogen and other gases produced from renewable energy”, says Dr. Uwe Lauber, CEO of MAN Energy Solutions. “Hydrogen will play a crucial role in the decarbonisation of those sectors that cannot be electrified directly. The LOHC technology is a game changing and powerful innovation by a great company and this partnership is an important step to further build our profile with regards to a future hydrogen economy.” Frames, MAN Energy Solutions and Hydrogenious LOHC Technologies are the right partners for scaling up the LOHC process and hence implementing the LOHC technology even more cost-effectively. As all three companies operate on a global level, this strong European consortium is well positioned for a worldwide realization of large-scale LOHC plants.

SoluForce, originator of high pressure Flexible Composite Pipe systems

Flexible Composite Pipe system for hydrogen applications

Renewable energies are becoming more important and, consequently, the share of renewable energy (i.e. wind, solar) is increasing in order to meet the climate targets. This renewable energy is mostly delivered through electricity from solar and wind. The advantage is that this ‘green’ electricity can be directly used in many applications at the end user. However, supply and demand should be exactly in balance, as the grid system has no buffer function. Moreover, renewables generally depend on external influences (such as weather conditions), causing peaks in supply. As a result, especially long term seasonal storage is a challenge.


OH-22.indd 20


24-10-19 13:51

Therefore, hydrogen will not only play an important role as a decarbonized energy carrier, but it will also help in making ‘green’ energy a more viable solution. Unique

This is why SoluForce has developed a Flexible Composite Pipe system (FCP or RTP) for hydrogen applications up to 42 bar of operating pressure. Unique in the world of hydrogen transport and a global first. This significant milestone has a major impact on the feasibility of (green) hydrogen, and is a new step towards a sustainable energy mix. First application of the SoluForce Hydrogen solution will be at Groningen Seaports, where four kilometres (2.5 miles) of SoluForce infrastructure will be installed later this year. This infrastructure will distribute green hydrogen produced by wind mills in the North Sea to companies in the chemical and industrial sectors in the Eemshaven. Impressive

As a professor of Future Energy System at the TU Delft and the leading hydrogen expert in Europe, Prof. Ad van Wijk was impressed with the capabilities of SoluForce Flexible Composite Pipe system and its suitability for hydrogen applications. “Green Hydrogen is an energy carrier that can transport and store large quantities of Solar and Wind at low cost. It is necessary for the realization of the Paris climate goals, as well as to make the economy stronger and greener. I believe that the SoluForce pipe solutions will play a vital role in facilitating the energy transition by providing affordable and proven hydrogen transportation and distribution solutions.”


Fully flexible

SoluForce (part of Pipelife B.V.) is a proven technology with over 3.500km of pipe installed since the year 2000, mainly in the oil and gas industry. Compared to conventional steel pipes, SoluForce pipes are maintenance-free, extremely durable and can be used for transporting hydrogen at high pressures. Robert-Jan Berg, Managing Director SoluForce, says: “I believe that an important part of innovation is combining the right partners and their underlying knowledge. During this project we were able to do just that. I would like to thank Groningen Seaports and KIWA for the pleasant cooperation in this project and their valuable input and efforts. Furthermore, the recognition from Ad van Wijk shows that we are on a right track to make a significant contribution to the future of the hydrogen value chain.”

The SoluForce hydrogen pipe solution is based on proven and existing technologies that have been widely used in the oil and gas industry for almost 20 years. With a uniquely manufactured bonded aluminium layer, hydrogen is not able to permeate out of the SoluForce H2T pipe. Resulting in the industries only completely Hydrogen Tight Flexible Composite Pipe (or RTP) system. Therefore it eliminates possible health, safety and environmental issues. No special treatment is needed, reducing installation and maintenance costs. Reinforced with synthetic fibre, SoluForce Classic H2T has a MOP of 42 bar/ 609 psi at 65°C/149°F with a design lifetime of up to 50 years. Being fully flexible, it is ideal for even the toughest applications and can be installed anywhere. It is the industry’s only true permeation tight FCP system.

Ampelmann: offshore access is about excellent service

More than 900,000 safe personnel transfers In little more than a decade, Walk to Work (W2W) has become the cornerstone of the offshore industry. It was back in 2007 when Ampelmann laid the foundation for this new market with its full motion compensation technology. Back then a small, innovative startup based in Delft, the Netherlands; today it is a leading offshore access provider with offices across five continents.

The Ampelmann E1000 was recently utilised in Oil & Gas and performed its first cargo lifts in the industry.

“By introducing Walk to Work to the industry, Ampelmann once challenged the status quo in offshore access. Today, we are challenging the industry again as we take it from innovative systems to full service,� said CEO Jan van der Tempel. The company understands the need to go beyond gangway systems and to provide a wide range of services around them. Offshore access is about getting people from A to B and doing so as safely and efficiently as possible. Opportunities

Over the past year, the company has


OH-22.indd 22

focused on entering new markets and bringing W2W to new territories. It recently secured its first contract in Mexican waters as well as in Norway, introducing its innovative technology to those local markets. Ampelmann is also working to diversify its fleet and the applications of its existing systems. The E1000 system, originally designed to transfer people and loads up to 1,000kg, was recently tailored to the specific needs of a client and had its cargo lift capacity improved. As a result, it helped move 1,300kg of cargo from a vessel to an offshore wind turbine.

The same system, which has a yearslong track record in Offshore Wind, was also recently utilised in Oil & Gas and performed its first cargo lifts in the industry for Apache North Sea. It supported critical maintenance work on a Single Point Mooring (SPM) platform, as well as the refurbishment of a helideck. The Ampelmann system provided not only the W2W solution, but also the capacity to lift necessary tools and equipment to the helideck. Middle East and Caspian region

In the Middle East and Caspian region, in particular, the company has


24-10-19 13:51

performed more than 900,000 safe personnel transfers, a large part of which in Crew Change operations. Working together with vessel owner Caspian Marine Services (CMS) in Baku, Azerbaijan, Ampelmann has demonstrated the benefits of its tailor-made solutions. “Ampelmann has been operating in the Middle East and Caspian region since the end of 2013. In less than five years, our team has grown this part of the business by 500%,” said Jayne Moran, Ampelmann’s Business Development Manager for the region. “We see huge potential for further expansion in this part of the world with partners such as Caspian Marine Services, as oil and gas operators become more and more aware of the huge benefits Walk to Work can bring to their operations.” Among the company’s work in the region have been two turn-key projects with vessel owner Caspian Marine Services (CMS) in Baku, Azerbaijan. For these Crew Change operations, the team has installed A-type systems on two purpose-built Fast Crew Suppliers (FCS) – the Muslim Magomayev and Rashid Behbudov. While both vessels were originally equipped with an A-type only, they were later fitted with slideways to better suit the scope of the projects. The slideways enable the continuous flow of personnel and can transfer 50 people in less than five minutes.


As an add-on, the slideway is crucial for fast, safe and efficient crew change operations. In this case, the goal was for the gangway systems to replace helicopters as an (often expensive) means of personnel transfer offshore. These two projects are an example of the adaptability and service-mindedness of the Dutch offshore access provider. To date, the A-type has enabled more than 70,000 safe personnel transfers from the Muslim Magomayev and over 65,000 from the Rashid Behbudov. The campaigns have been running since the middle of 2015 and the end of 2016, respectively, for contracts lasting five years. With businesses becoming more aware of the need for increased safety and cost-efficiency, marine-based transfer solutions are taking centre stage. Ampelmann has a long-term commitment to the global O&G industry, creating tailored solutions to clients’ needs and ensuring the journey to and from offshore installations, across all regions, is as safe and efficient as possible.

Increasing potential of jack-ups Jack-up platforms have been a backbone of the offshore industry since its beginnings. The understanding of the use and the potential application of jack-ups have developed greatly over the years and have allowed an ever expanding envelope of possible uses of this type of offshore unit.


OH-22.indd 24


24-10-19 13:51

In recent years the envelope has been expanded into ever deeper waters. This has been culminating in the CJ70 drilling jack-up design, the largest of the GustoMSC CJ series in operation. The CJ70 is designed to operate in 150 m water depth in harsh environments like the North Sea and provides competition in an area previously dominated by floaters. But also large installation jack-ups such as the Seajacks Scylla and the recent new wind installation jack-up order by Shimizu Corporation which is capable of working in 65 m water depth, open up the deeper water potential. Meanwhile, we have been working to expand the envelope in all directions of new and existing units, large and small, in operation today, thereby improving their economics in a challenging market. As an example, accessibility of shallow water areas has become increasingly important to broaden the potential area where jack-up platforms can work. This is particularly true in the Middle East region, which traditionally is an area where jack-ups have been used extensively. Developing new fields in ever shallower water, reduced spud can bearing pressure allowance to preserve the seabed and an increasing need for maintenance and workover in existing deeper and shallow water fields have led to evolving requirements. On the other hand, in South-East Asia, deeper water and particularly soft soils pose their own set of challenges.

Our OSS can unlock interesting expansion possibilities for jack-ups without significant conversion and associated investments.

specific assessments of the capabilities of a jack-up, to e.g. allow them to function in reduced water depth, or with spud can add-ons to reduce bearing pressure in poor soil conditions. In particular the specific assessments offer interesting opportunities to expand the envelope without significant conversion, and the associated investment, of the jack-up. The potential of digital mobile offshore units generate a constant stream of valuable data. When stored and analyzed intelligently, it becomes practical information for operations. GustoMSC developed its new Operator Support System (OSS) to enable the jack-up operator to work

more efficiently by having all relevant information available real time. OSS connects systems, extracts and intelligently combines the available data and translates the relevant information into key operational support. For instance, by coupling real-time foundation loads and the crane operation, the full potential of the jack-up can be used, while safety is maximized because the information of multiple sub-systems can be combined and manual misinterpretation can be prevented. In short, the OSS is safely unlocking interesting expansion possibilities for jack-ups without significant conversion and associated investments.

Engineering support

To support its clients with these challenges, GustoMSC draws on its long experience in pushing the boundaries for existing and new jack-ups to further expand the envelope today. The possibilities of existing jack-ups can be increased by engineering analyses like field or area

GustoMSC NG-1800XL.


OH-22.indd 25

Chela installation on GustoMSC’s CJ70.

Widen up potential area

As a new-build design, the NG1800XL is an example of a jack-up that widens the potential applicable area by applying our experience, deep knowledge of jack-up technology and practical understanding of the use of jack-ups as well as the feedback that we obtain from providing operational support to our clients. The NG-1800XL builds on GustoMSC’s NG-1800X design which is a versatile unit and a smaller sister of the popular NG-2500X. It also includes the common NG frames of transit and positioning offshore without tug assistance, and the four legs and diagonal preloading capability allow for easy, fast and secure jacking and pre-loading operations. The NG-1800XL multi-purpose jack-up design addresses the developing requirements for operations in all areas of the Middle East, featuring a shallow draught of 3.7 m combined with a reduced


OH-22.indd 26

spudcan pressure. At the same time, it features a water-depth capability of 55 m providing usability over a large area of the region, combined with variable load capabilities and a deck area to meet the requirements of the oil companies in the region today. New tools

Besides the jack-up designs and engineering support that increase the potential of jack-ups, the equipment on the jack-up plays a distinctive role. Wind installation jack-ups can now be equipped with GustoMSC’s Telescopic Leg Crane. Equipped with a telescopic boom, the leg crane offers an innovative combination of high hoisting capability for WTG installation and heavy load capability for installing foundations. The telescopic boom avoids protrusion of a very long crane boom outside the hull dimensions during transit, increasing the transit conditions and maneuverability in ports. In terms of both capacity and lifting height, whether retracted or extended, these cranes are future proof for the

maintenance and installation of the new generation offshore WTGs. Chela, named after a crab’s claw, is another unique piece of equipment. Designed to prove lifting and handling capability below a jack-up’s drilling cantilever and to achieve a high level of safety, this multifunctional arm offers an extra hand in operations. Due to its crablike motion characteristics, it can reach below the cantilever as well as elevate towards the main deck, providing access to an area traditionally blocked by the drilling cantilever. Chela thus significantly reduces the total well construction time. A permanent backbone

As the industry moves forward and continually redefines future ambitions, it is up to technology providers to increase its understanding of the use and the potential application of jack-ups. By supporting the industry in its ambitions, the jack-up as an offshore unit type remains a backbone of the offshore industry.
