Audacia: Innovation at Great Depths

Monday, September 10, 2007
The offshore vessel, the Audacia, is set to sail soon. With a length of 738 ft. (225 m), the Audacia is a deep-sea pipelay vessel that can be qualified as large to gigantic. It is the first vessel that lays out the pipeline over the bow. Two years of conversion preceded its May 8 christening. During that time, Imtech Marine & Offshore among others converted a huge bulk carrier into an advanced offshore vessel: a superb performance in terms of the time it took to complete the project and the application of innovative techniques. Imtech Marine & Offshore received the commission from Allseas, a leader in the installation of offshore oil and gas pipelines. In a partnership with GTI, the complete installation was projected and completed with 300,000 manhours.
