New Jack-Up Designed for Oil, Gas and Wind
OOS Energy of the Netherlands has designed the Multi Activity Unit (MAU), a self-propelled, dynamically positioned jack-up capable of performing a wide range of services.
The unit is equipped with a high efficiency plug and abandonment package able to perform well intervention/workover, drilling operations and performing activities simultaneous on multiple wells. It also has a large accommodation and two 1,200MT cranes, capable of removing the majority of platforms in the Southern North Sea or other areas in the world with water depths up to 80 meters.
In addition, the unit is able to transport and offload removed structures without the support of other vessels or heavy lift equipment, a capability also suited to the offshore wind energy sector for installation of monopiles, jackets and turbines.
OOS Energy is finalizing the equipment packages and is in final discussions with shipyards for the construction of two units with an expected availability in the fourth quarter of 2020 and the first quarter of 2021. The first unit is to be named Luctor et Emergo.
