Jascon 25 Arrives in Australia for Installation Services at Pyrenees Field

Subsequent to its delivery by the Drydock World shipyard in Singapore, the Jascon 25 arrived in NW Australia two weeks ago. After successful sea trials and subsequent mobilization the vessel commenced work on its first major contract offshore for Seastream JV to install the SURF facilities at the Pyrenees Field.

Jascon 25 was built according to the Sea Trucks Group's hybrid design philosophy and is the third vessel to be delivered in the group's seven vessel new-build pipe-lay / construction program, each of which have DP3, large decks, big cranes, as well as very substantial offshore accommodation capacity. The hybrid configuration of the vessel makes it suitable to execute a wide variety of marine construction and pipe-lay tasks in both the SURF and conventional pipe-lay and platform installation markets, both in deep-water and continental shelf environments.

Jascon 25 is a 120 m DP3 pipe-lay crane vessel with a total thruster power of 12,155 kW, an 800 t subsea Huisman crane, 355 men accommodation block and the capability of laying both rigid (S-lay) and flexible pipe.

Jacques J. Roomans, owner and CEO of the Sea Trucks Group, noted, "I am happy to advise that after very successful sea-trials our Jascon 25 arrived on the job for its first assignment in NW Australia. We are confident that through this contract award to the Seastream JV the Sea Trucks Group will strengthen its recognition as a strong and capable offshore industry player."
