Technip Introduces New Vessel

Technip has introduced its latest newbuild, the diving support vessel (DSV) Deep Explorer, which was officially named November 12 in Norway.

The vessel hull was built by the Vard Tulcea shipyard in Romania, then towed to Vard Langsten in Norway for equipment outfitting and commissioning. The vessel features a 24-man twin bell saturated dive system rated to 1,148 feet. Deep Explorer is purpose-designed and certified for subsea projects in the North Sea Canada market, according to Technip. The vessel will commence operational duties in 2017.

“This event marks an important milestone in this three-year project to design, build and deliver this impressive fantastic new ship,” Bruno Faure, Technip’s senior vice president for subsea projects and operations, said.

“We are proud to welcome the Deep Explorer, an impressive key asset for the Technip fleet and for our clients. My sincere thanks to all those in Technip and our partner companies who have contributed to this successful project,” he added.
