DEME has ordered two new vessels serving the offshore energy market. Contracts have been signed with shipyards La Naval in Spain and Uljanik in Croatia to build respectively the multipurpose vessel Living Stone and the self-propelled jack-up vessel Apollo. Both vessels will be delivered in 2017.
Apollo will join GeoSea’s current fleet of self-propelled jack-ups. The vessel will be equipped with an 800 tonne leg-encircling crane. The vessel deck provides free area of 2000m² with a load carrying capacity of 15 t/m². It will be outfitted with 106.8m long lattice legs that allow it to operate in water depths of up to 70m.
The multipurpose vessel Living Stone will join DEME’s fleet of fall-pipe vessels servicing the offshore energy market, which currently includes the Flintstone, Rollingstone and Seahorse. The vessel will be equipped with a fall-pipe system as well as cable/umbilical loading and installation facilities and will have advanced subsea construction capabilities.
