The department offers extensive resources and facilities for the execution of mechanical, structural, piping, instrumentation and electrical projects in offshore fields.
HOSC has several major contracts in place for construction and maintenance services, and those are supported by HOSC’s in-house vessels and expertise. HOSC owns and operates a number of vessels with cranes that are designed for topsides work and that have sufficient accommodation. These vessels are tailor made and constructed with offshore construction and maintenance programs in mind. Our Construction and Maintenance division has been supporting and executing offshore fabrication and maintenance work in Qatari oil fields for more than 15 years under long term joint venture contracts with Qatar Petroleum, Occidental Petroleum, and Qatar Gas.
These vessels are fully-equipped floating workshops which can be rapidly mobilized to site to carry out preventive and breakdown maintenance. The vessels are staffed by highly-skilled in house supervisors, field engineers, draughts men, general foremen, welding and fabricating foremen, NDT technicians, welders, fabricators/fitters, scaffolders, riggers, grit blasters, painters, electricians, heat treatment technicians, crane operators, and store keepers among other professions. The vessels also have heat treatment facilities for stress relief of small and medium size components.
