Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) won an order to build a $240m semi-submersible heavy transportation vessel (SSHTV) from Dockwise. The vessel is specially designed to transport more than 110,000 tons of offshore oil and gas production facilities including FPSO (Floating, Production, Storage and Offloading) units. After completed, FPSO are usually transported by two or three tug boats from shipyards to operating sites, taking about months to mobilize on the sites. This super-heavy transportation vessel can halve the delivery time, helping move up the installation and commissioning time.

The vessel, measuring 902 ft in length, 230 ft in width, and 51 ft in depth with a carrying capacity of more than 110,000 tons, is scheduled to be handed over during the last quarter of 2012. Upon completion, the vessel will be the world’s largest semi-submersible heavy transportation vessel.
