UK-based Ceona contract with Lloyd Werft for the construction of a new multi-purpose offshore vessel, the 'Ceona Amazon'.

The Ceona Amazon, based on a drill-ship design, is SPS compliant and equipped with a DP2 system. It will be especially well-suited for operations in remote and challenging locations and capable of laying rigid or flexible pipelines and umbilicals.

Ceona has finalised its agreement with Lloyd Werft for the construction of a new high-capacity vessel, the Ceona Amazon, at a signing ceremony in Bremerhaven. Members of the Ceona management team, led by CEO Steve Preston and Chairman John Smith, were joined by a representative from majority shareholder Goldman Sachs Capital Partners, at the contract signing with Lloyd Werft at the Bremerhaven, German shipyard.

With detailed design work well under way and major subcontracts placed already, work will now progress on the fabrication, construction, outfitting and commissioning of the Ceona Amazon. Keel laying is planned for August 2013. Fabrication of the hull will take place at Polish yard CRIST S.A., and the vessel will be outfitted at Lloyd Werft Bremerhaven. The multifunctional construction and pipelay vessel is set to enter service in December 2014.

Ceona’s CEO, Steve Preston, commented: "We are very happy to sign on the dotted line here in Bremerhaven with Lloyd Werft, and look forward to seeing the Ceona Amazon take shape. It's a fantastic vessel and we are now focussed on putting it to work following its completion in late 2014.”

Lloyd Werft will deliver the vessel to Ceona in October 2014, prior to final installation work which will be carried out by Huisman in the Netherlands.
