Subsea 7 announced today that it has ordered a new DP3 heavy construction and flexible pipelay vessel from Hyundai Heavy Industries.
Powered by six main engines in two engine rooms and equipped with a 600t Huisman Active Heave Compensated crane and a 325t top-tension vertical lay system, this vessel will be one of the most capable heavy construction vessels in Subsea 7’s fleet of over 40 ships.
This will be the second vessel that HHI will build for Subsea 7. In November 2012, Subsea 7 signed a contract with HHI to build a new Dive Support Vessel which will join the fleet in 2015.
Subsea 7 Executive Vice President Commercial Steve Wisely commented: “This is another investment in our world class leading fleet so that we can continue to meet our clients’ demands for executing larger, more complex projects in deep and ultra-deepwater and in harsher environments.”
Vessel delivery is expected in 2016.
