OPEC offers vessel and equipment hire packages in a number configurations with both dry hire and fully manned options
being available for both short and long term deployment.

Vessel Hire

OPEC has two boats for hire – OPEC1 and OPEC2. The vessels have been specifically designed to cater for inshore  searches,
inspection services, salvage/recovery, and general maintenance of your wharves, piers and bridges. Both vessels are very stable
and are well suited as workboats, dive platforms, lift pontoons and survey vessels.

Our boats are commercially registered, and have all necessary equipment on board to undertake the job at hand. Both vessels are trailer able and can be hired with a tow vehicle and crew if required.  Alternatively, for an additional charge, we can arrange drop off and pick up of the vessel for you.

OPEC also has a range of labour services available for hire included but not limited to commercial divers, coxswains and crew, and road transport drivers.


OPEC1 is a 10.80m long vessel operating in 2D survey.  The vessel is equipped with a FASSI M10A 12 HIAB crane hydraulic system. It has twin Suzuki (DF) 115 four stroke engines and is capable of achieving 30knots at 4500rpm. Please see attached for further specifications.


OPEC2 is a 10.26m long Dumb Barge. OPEC2 can carry 5.0 tonnes of weight. The vessel is an excellent support platform for any marine construction project. Please see attached for further specifications.

Equipment Hire

WOMA 150M Ultra High Pressure Water Jetting Unit

OPEC Subsea has a WOMA 150M Ultra High Pressure unit available to hire.  The UHP Water Jet is trailer mounted for quick and easy deployment and has lfting points for positioning using cranes or hoists.  The unit can operate at pressures up to 2200 bar.  This precision machine can assist with:

  • Cold cutting steel and concrete
  • Removal of marine coatings and corrosion
  • Preparation of surfaces for marine coating applications

Use of this equipment can only be undertaken by certified operators.  OPEC can supply trained and experienced technicians to support your project needs.

Hydraulic Diamond Wire Saw 1638

The diamond wire saw (DWS) can cut steel and concrete pylons or pipe at an average rate of 25mm per minute up to 960mm in diameter.  The DWS has a 200m long umbilical to make deployment to difficult to reach areas easy.  OPEC Subsea uses biodegradable fluid in all our hydraulic equipment to minimise any impacts on the environment.
