Shell Global Solutions used Delmar to install vortex induced vibration (VIV) fairings onto the existing Brutus flowline, which had 300 ft (91 m) of suspended span experiencing VIV fatigue issues. The scope of work involved twenty-two deployments to install a total of sixty-five fairings using the HCLS. The project was executed over seven days, during which time the production platform remained in full operation due to the Delmar HCLS functionality and ability to ensure asset integrity.

  • VIV fairing installation
  • HCLS installation from multi-service vessel (MSV)
  • Facility continued production during vessel open water work
