The igils were tasked with producing five large (up to A1 print) illustrations, all centred around deep sea exploration. There’s no hiding the fact that we love this sort of illustration – meaty, something we can really get our teeth into, and it involves cool vehicles – what more could you ask for! These are the first three illustrations. Warning – if you go full screen, you’ll need to click the thumbnail at the bottom of the screen to get back to a manageble size. We kept the “go large” option in case you wanted a gander at the detail!
Shot 1 – Subsea Installation
The subsea installation shot shows the Åsgard subsea gas compression system. The various vessels are; on the left, the North Sea Giant (the largest and most advanced offshore construction vessels ever built) and the Far Sleipner (an offshore supply ship) in the centre. To the right is an FPSO (Floating Production, Storage and Offloading).
Shot 2 – Arctic Installation
This illustration depicts the difficulties of working offshore in Arctic conditions – we can see, from the left; the North Sea Giant, the Erik Raude ocean rig, a refinery, ice breaker and lastly the Far Sleipner.
