International offshore support specialist Viking SeaTech held taster sessions of its Mooring Schools initiative at last week’s Offshore Technology Conference in Houston.
Viking SeaTech’s Mooring Schools scheme was developed by Viking SeaTech employees in Perth, Australia. The scheme offers educational sessions to provide a broad understanding of mooring systems and their importance when planning offshore drilling activities. It has been offered to customers free of charge in Western Australia and the UK to date.
Tom Bower, Viking SeaTech President – Americas, said: “We have been hugely successful with introducing our Mooring Schools scheme to clients worldwide. We see OTC as the perfect platform to introduce the technical aspects of mooring to a global audience.”
Viking SeaTech works in locations around the world, with bases in the UK, Australia, Singapore, Indonesia and the USA. It also works with partners in Egypt, Ghana, South Africa and Canada.
Viking SeaTech was acquired by the Actuant Corporation last year for US$ 225 million.
