On September 16, 2020, Equinor Canada Ltd. reported that a fire had occurred earlier that morning on the fast rescue craft (FRC) onboard the M/V Siem Diamond vessel, which was on stand-by at the time to the Transocean Barents.
All personnel safely mustered, there were no injuries and all personnel were accounted for. The fire team was able to quickly extinguish the fire, however the FRC received extensive damage and was deemed unavailable. There were no reports of other damage or impairments to the vessel.
As the FRC on the stand-by vessel M/V Siem Diamond was unavailable for use, all planned helicopter flights and other non-critical operations on board the Transocean Barents were temporarily suspended. A replacement stand-by vessel was deployed to the rig location and has assumed stand-by duties. The Transocean Barents has resumed operations.
The C-NLOPB is monitoring Equinor’s investigation of the incident.
