Subsea 7, Eidesvik Unveil Latest IMR Ship

Subsea 7 unveiled and named its latest inspection, maintenance and repair (IMR) vessel Wednesday in Stavanger, Norway, the company announced.

The ICE-C class vessel, built by Ulstein, and co-owned by Subsea 7 and Eidesvik has a crew capacity of 90 and a top speed of 17 knots. Set to go to work for Statoil on a five-year contract, it has been custom-built according to the operator's specifications to carry out IMR on subsea installations in addition to scale treatment and "ready for operations" work scopes.

Subsea 7 Vice President for Norway Stuart Fitzgerald commented in a company statement:

"The collective effort, and strong cooperation, between Ulstein, Eidesvik and Subsea 7, has resulted in the Seven Viking. The Seven Viking represents another class leading asset in the Subsea 7 fleet and captures Subsea 7's unparalleled experience with IMR operations in harsh environments."
