Technip has selected Damen Shiprepair Rotterdam to complete works on a deepwater rigid pipe S-lay and heavy lift vessel.
After completing the life time extension works on the Stanislav Yudin, the new contract awarded to DSR will include dry docking, upgrades and operational modifications for the Global 1200, one of two deepwater rigid pipe S-lay and heavy lift vessels owned by Technip.
Ruud Haneveer, Commercial Manager Offshore & Conversion commented on the scope of work; “The major upgrade works are divided into three packages; (i) dry-docking for Special Periodical Survey and various maintenance repair works, (ii) modifications to upgrade the vessel DP capability, and (iii) various pipelay equipment upgrades for future projects."
The Global 1200 was designed by Ulstein Sea of Solutions (SoS) of the Netherlands and built by Singapore-based Keppel Singmarine.
MD of Damen Shiprepair Rotterdam Mark Witjens said that he was pleased that the contract had been finalised. "The successful completion of the Stanislav Yudin upgrade earlier this year gave a significant step upwards in DSR’s project management and QHES organization and this will contribute to the successful completion of the Global 1200 upgrade and modifications works.”
