Technip name subsea construction & flexible pipelay projects vessel 'Deep Orient' in Vigo, Spain.

During the ceremony held at the Metalships & Docks (MSD) shipyard in Vigo, the ship was named by the vessel’s godmother, Véronique Delormel, wife of Frédéric Delormel, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Subsea at Technip.

Thanks to a successful cooperation between Technip's Marine New Builds team in Aberdeen, UK and the MSD team, vessel construction was completed within a tight time frame. The initial contracts were agreed in December 2010 and fabrication, as well as assembly, started in mid-2011. After final outfitting and commissioning, sea trials were successfully completed.

The Deep Orient is equipped with a 250-metric tonne main crane, dynamic positioning (DP2) station-keeping capability, two work-class remotely operated vehicles and a large 1,900-m2 deck area for ample storage of equipment while working on remotely located projects. Moreover, she can accommodate 120 people and complies with the latest marine environmental standards.

The new ship  will mobilize at Technip’s facility in Le Trait, France before undertaking her first projects in Norway.
Thierry Pilenko, Technip Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented: “The introduction of the Deep Orient is the latest initiative in offering our clients a fit-for-purpose fleet to help them with their projects. Today, Technip has the capabilities to answer the industry’s needs, from deep to shore. The Deep Orient confirms our integrated services strategy for offshore field development, subsea construction, fabrication and installation of submarine pipes across the world.”
