Subsea 7 Takes Delivery of New Vessels

Oilfield services company Subsea 7 has taken delivery of two new vessels, completing a “substantial and targeted fleet investment program” that has added six new-build vessels to the Subsea 7 fleet since 2014. 

Seven Arctic is a heavy construction flex-lay vessel designed to meet the demands of deep water and harsh environments. Capable of working at depths of 9,842 feet, the vessel features a 1,000t offshore crane and a 600t top tension (tiltable) lay system. 

Seven Kestrel is a modern dive support vessel, certified by DNV-GL, encompassing an 18-man twin-bell saturation diving system rated to a 984 foot water depth. 

“We have one of the most modern, capable and diverse fleets of vessels in our market segment that differentiates our industry leading service. The arrival of Seven Arctic and Seven Kestrel further strengthens our fleet and client offering,” John Evans, Subsea 7 chief operating officer, said.

“Seven Arctic delivers an important step change in our subsea construction capability, particularly in ultra-deep water fields which pose increasingly technical challenges, whilst Seven Kestrel reinforces our leading diving capabilities,” he added.

Both vessels will transit to the North Sea for further crew familiarization before commencing operations in the spring, Subsea 7 said.
