ODS plans Dundee opening

Following its establishment by a team of oil and gas professionals in 2017, Offshore Decommissioning Services (ODS) is set to open its UK headquarters in Dundee in early 2019.

ODS, which will focus on decommissioning activities in the North Sea, is currently constructing a UK-flagged multipurpose heavy lift vessel named Moonraker I.

The vessel is expected to be delivered in 2021 and is designed to lift topsides weighing up to 30,000 tonnes and subsea infrastructure weighing up to 12,000 tonnes.

When in operation, Moonraker 1 will be manned by a crew of 70 people and will also be able to provide pipeline and bundle removal along with offshore installation projects, said ODS.

At its headquarters in Dundee, ODS will establish an engineering and logistics hub to support the activities of the vessel. Lee Johnson, chief executive of ODS, explained that the company aims to reduce the cost and time of decommissioning topsides, substructures and subsea infrastructure.
