Seajacks Kraken was constructed by Lamprell Energy in Dubai and was delivered on time and on budget in Q1 2009.
This state-of-the-art, self-propelled jack-up vessel was built and is operated in compliance with the most stringent regulations and in accordance with standard procedures required to operate in the North Sea hydrocarbon industry.
The vessel has an HSE accepted Safety Case in accordance with UK Offshore Installation (Safety Case) Regulations 2005.
The vessel is equipped with DP2 capability which allows for fast, safe and cost-efficient transit and positioning between locations; this not only transforms operations in the oil and gas industry, but also facilitates efficient installation and maintenance of offshore wind farms.
In 2009 vessel successfully completed an accommodation/support project in Halifax, Canada for ExxonMobil at the Thebaud Platform, off Nova Scotia.
Subsequently, the vessel carried out a well intervention project for TAQA Energy BV in the Dutch Sector of the North Sea and completed a 15 month contract with DONG Energy to perform wind farm installation work at the Walney wind farm located in the Irish Sea.
Kraken then operated in the Southern North Sea, performing well interventions, coiled tubing services for NAM UK & Shell over a two year period which commenced in 2012. Currently, Seajacks Kraken is preparing to mobilise to the Shell L2 platform in the Dutch sector, where she will be engaged in Hydraulic fracturing activities.
