Oceaneering International, Inc., a global oilfield provider of engineered services and products, has selected BAE Systems to build a subsea support vessel for offshore drilling. The vessel will be used to augment Oceaneering’s ability to provide subsea intervention services in the ultra-deep waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

BAE Systems continues to support the offshore energy market as it grows its U.S. commercial shipbuilding operations. Construction will take place at the company’s Mobile, Alabama shipyard, and, when complete, the U.S. flagged vessel will measure 353 feet long with a 72-foot-long beam.

The DP2 vessel will be Marin Teknikk of Norway’s MT6022 design and will be equipped with a 250-ton crane capable of reaching 4,000-meter water depth. It will be powered by GE tier IVi-emission compliant engines, and by energy efficient and environmentally compliant power and propulsion systems. 

Projects currently under construction at BAE Systems’ Mobile and Jacksonville, Florida, shipyards include two dump scows and six platform supply vessels. The company employs more than 1,300 people at the two sites and expects to hire an additional 250 workers by mid-2014.
