Contract for Damen Shiprepair for Tecnhip pipelay vessel

After having successfully performed the life-time extension works on the Stanislav Yudin (owned and operated by Seaway Heavy Lifting), in 2013 - 2014 at Damen Shiprepair Rotterdam (DSR), part of Damen Shiprepair & Conversion, a new significant contract is awarded by Technip, for dry-docking, upgrades and operational modifications to the deepwater rigid pipe S-lay and heavy lift vessel, the Global 1200. The vessel arrived at the yard in January 2015.

The Global 1200 is the first of two deepwater rigid pipe S-lay and heavy lift vessels owned by Technip. The vessel was designed by Ulstein Sea of Solutions (SoS) of the Netherlands and built by Singapore-based Keppel Singmarine.

Ruud Haneveer, Commercial Manager Offshore & Conversion explains the scope of work; “The major upgrade works are divided into 3 packages; (i) dry-docking for Special Periodical Survey and various maintenance repair works, (ii) modifications to upgrade the vessel DP capability, and (iii) various pipelay equipment upgrades for future projects.

Mark Witjens, Managing Director of Damen Shiprepair Rotterdam is very pleased to see this contract materializse after six months of hard work with Aberdeen and Houston based Technip project teams. “The successful completion of the Stanislav Yudin upgrade earlier this year gave a significant step upwards in DSR’s project management and QHES organisation and this will contribute to the successful completion of the Global 1200 upgrade and modifications works.”
