Innovative Sea of Solutions Pipelay Vessel to be Built

Monday, April 30, 2007
The Larsen & Toubro/SapuraCrest Petroleum joint venture has ordered a new-generation heavy-lift/pipelay vessel designed by Sea of Solutions, part of the Offshore Ship Designers Group. Sea of Solutions was responsible for both the concept design and basic design of the $138m vessel, which will enter service in 2009. The S2500 pipelay vessel will be built by ASL Marine, Singapore.

The S2500 design is a customized version of the Sea of Solutions’ Seabarge 3000 design, featuring a more shipshape hull with bulbous bow, increasing transit speed and generating additional space for the mooring system without consequences for DP lay-out. The S2500 has a 10-point mooring system and can be upgraded to DP.

The design incorporates a center firing line with 6 single joint welding stations to optimize pipelaying operations. Furthermore, the vessel is equipped with a 3,000 short ton single post crane. For this project, Sea of Solutions teamed up with Deltamarin of Finland, one of its engineering partners.
