Tuesday, April 30, 2013

Siem Offshore contracts Remontowa Shipbuilding S.A. of Poland to construct a dynamically positioned Cable Lay Vessel (CLV).

The associated gross project cost for the first vessel, scheduled for April 2015 and ready for operation, is approx. USD 85 million.

The CLV has been designed in close cooperation with VARD Design and will have an overall length of 95.3 meters, a breadth of 21.5 meters, a cable payload of 4,250 tons and an accommodation for 60 persons. The CLV will be equipped with a state-of-the-art diesel-electric propulsion system consisting of four main generators providing power to two azimuth propulsion thrusters, two tunnel thrusters and one retractable thruster, ensuring excellent station-keeping capability as well as environmentally-friendly and fuel efficient marine operations.

The focus for the design of this vessel has been to meet the challenging requirements of the installation, repair and maintenance of medium and high voltage submarine cable systems within the offshore renewable energy and offshore oil and gas markets.

Siem Offshore say that the contract for the CLV is the next step within its long-term strategy to support its subsidiary Siem Offshore Contractors  with high-end installation and support assets to further strengthen its ambition to become the leading provider in the area of submarine cable installation services. The new ship is planned for work in combination with an installation support vessel  ordered by Siem Offshore in October 2012.
