Beerenberg is in full swing preparing and planning the annual programmes for 2019 at Tjeldbergodden, Mongstad and the various offshore installations. An increase in activity is forecast for the coming year.
Part of the reason why the department has continued expanding is to prepare itself for higher activity levels, particularly in the corrosion under insulation (CUI) segment.
“The challenge in terms of CUI is that it requires more engineering per hour of work than traditional surface treatment. The job packages are more complex and involve a greater degree of monitoring,” Thømt says.
Prospects in the ISS market are also good, and the company is gearing up for a hectic and exciting period. “For instance, there will be two maintenance shutdowns at Statfjord which will contribute to increased volumes in 2019,” says Trond Løvaas, operations manager at recruitment agency Drift Sør.
Beerenberg’s MMO department is a mix of experienced personnel with years of service, both at Beerenberg and in the industry as a whole, and new, young blood.
“This brilliant and highly competent team is ready to get stuck in and adopt new and innovative technologies,” Thømt concludes.
