Imtech Wins Big O&G Vessel Orders
Imtech received an order from the Sembawang Shipyard in Singapore to provide the environmentally friendly (diesel) electric propulsion, automation and high and low voltage systems on board the ‘Borealis’, a crane vessel measuring 183 x 46 m. This vessel will operate in the international oil and gas market for Nordic Heavy Lift. The Borealis, with a 5,000-tonne lifting capacity, will be able to install or remove entire topsides at oil and gas platforms. It will also be able to perform work at 3,000 m below sea level. The hull will be built in China, after which Imtech, via its branches Imtech Marine & Offshore (Rotterdam) and Radio Holland (Singapore), will implement and commission the technology.
Imtech also received an order from Seaway Heavy Lifting (head quarters in The Netherlands) to realize, via its Radio Holland branch (Rotterdam), broadband satellite communication, ICT infrastructure, autopilot, alarm, monitoring & control systems as well as various other modern electronic solutions on board the ‘HLV-5000’. The ‘HLV-5000’ is a 183 x 37 m high-tech offshore crane vessel with a 5,000-tonne lifting capacity currently under construction at the Merwede Shipyard of IHC Merwede in The Netherlands.
Via its HDW-Hagenuk Schiffstechnik branch (Hamburg) Imtech is responsible for the entire technical infrastructure and automation, including the environmentally friendly (diesel) electric propulsion, on board a new seismological research vessel for Fugro Aberdeen at the Fassmer Werft (shipyard) in Germany. The vessel will be used for research into the detection of new or existing oil reserves in the seabed and the underlying strata.
The Sea Trucks Group has commissioned Imtech Marine & Offshore (Rotterdam) to realize a major part of the technical infrastructure on board the ‘Jascon 18’, a large floating crane that is also able to lay pipelines in deep waters, and on board the offshore construction vessel ‘Jascon 35’.
