Astander Completes Upgrade

Tuesday, September 30, 2003
Astilleros de Santander, S.A. (Astander) has completed a recent upgrade project for Aberdeen-based Technip. The work was carried out on the 11,564 grt multi-purpose subsea installation vessel CSO Deep Pioneer, and included the installation of two new ROV launch & recovery systems and eight new two-cabin modular accommodation modules to take in the new crew requirements. Three new 1.360 Kw generators were also installed to support the new power demand onboard as a result of all the new equipment in a new purpose-built generator room. All new installations were located aft of the existing accommodation block. The whole program was completed after a 67-day stay of the vessel at the yard. This contract for Technip, follows another major upgrading project completed at Astander last winter for another U.K.-based customer : Global Marine Systems on their cable layer Wave Sentinel on which, another new ROV system was fitted.
