Testing benefits offshore operations

Mock-Up Mission

Testing pipe-lay procedures and training offshore crew¬† in an onshore location in Scotland is safer than on-the-job learning at sea in places like Angola – and it saves valuable vessel time. Completed on time and on budget, KENC Oil & Gas’ Workstation Mock-Up (WSMU) is a custom-built facility that allows Heerema Marine Contractors (HMC) to assess equipment and staff prior to stepping aboard their DCV Aegir. The project’s three key players – from KENC Oil & Gas, Managing Director Eric Buining and Project Manager Cor Hilbrink, and from HMC, Pipeline Production Coordinator Arthur van Opstal – tell the story.
