Sipsa is primarily responsible for the modernization and installation of offshore processing centers. The commissioning of the centers is also handled by Sipsa. Prefabricated materials are often a part of the process and are constructed by Sipsa as well.
As safety and accuracy are absolute necessities to properly carry out the work, the staff of Sipsa is trained using the best possible simulators, on and off worksite courses and top notch instructors. The tools used to complete the job are among the best technology available.
To carry out the work activities quickly and concisely, semi-submersible rigs are the workhorses of the operation. They have the speed and agility to handle nearly any task required at a worksite. The rigs also have the ability to quickly move from one site to another, minimizing losses due to expedience or lost productivity.
Derrick cranes are also used to build and move materials. This helps maximize productivity by being able to quickly assemble prefabricated structures. Being a part of the giant Cotemar gives Sipsa the advantage of having a yard close by on shore. This further helps to reduce lost time and productivity by having an intelligently placed logistical center.
