Scheduled to enter service in April 2010, the dynamically-positioned Global 1200 is a combination derrick/pipelay vessel with 1,200 tonne lifting capacity, 60–inch pipe laying capacity, and 400 tonne deep water lowering system capacity.
The Global 1200 is a customized version of the Sea of Solutions’ SOC 600 design and will be able to pass through the Panama and Suez canals. The design incorporates an AmClyde single post crane on the aft and a centre firing line on the freeboard deck, the latter being a distinctive feature of most Sea of Solutions pipelay designs. For this project Sea of Solutions teamed with Vuyk Engineering, one of its engineering partners.
