Subsea 7 Inc. announced that its latest state-of-the-art deepwater Flex / J-lay vessel, the 'Seven Seas,' has completed her first major installation project for StatoilHydro's Yttergryta field in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea.
Having joined the Subsea 7 fleet in June, the Seven Seas is the fourth in a series of eight new vessels joining the fleet between 2007 and 2010, representing a total investment of over $1.8 billion. The vessel was officially inaugurated in April by Mrs Anabela Fonseca, Board Member of Sonangol, Angola's national oil company.
The vessel was designed and constructed by Merwede Shipyward in the Netherlands. The flexible pipelay equipment, including a vertical lay system with top tension capability in excess of 400 t, and a 400 t deepwater crane, were designed and manufactured by Huisman in Rotterdam as part of a unique commercial agreement which aligns the interests of all parties concerned in the build. The vessel combines state-of-the-art technology with industry leading safety standards.
