First Steel Cut on Seajacks Liftboat

The first of Seajacks International's New Generation 2500X harsh environment liftboats is beginning to take shape in Dubai after the first steel was cut on the footings.

This is the first of two vessels under order from Lamprell Energy Ltd's Jebel-Ali offshore fabrication yard in Dubai. Seajacks has options to build a further three vessels of the same design.

The new vessels have been designed with the 21st century firmly in mind, and are built to ABS Classification and the stringent rules and regulations for operation in the North Sea.

The yard construction progress is proceeding according to plan and the first of Seajacks liftboats is scheduled to be delivered in February 2009.

Seajacks International Ltd. is a Bermuda based corporation founded in 2006 to own and operate state-of-the-art offshore liftboat vessels.
