Technip unveils new diving support vessel for subsea construction

PARIS, FRANCE: Technip SA officially introduced its latest newbuild, the diving support vessel (DSV) Deep Explorer.

The vessel hull was built by Vard Tulcea shipyard in Romania and then dragged to Vard Langsten in Norway for equipment outfitting and commissioning. The vessel features a state-of-the-art 24-man twin bell saturated dive system rated to 350m. The dive system was designed, built and commissioned by JFD, part of James Fisher and Sons plc.

Deep Explorer is a DP3 class DSV, purpose-designed and certified for subsea projects in the demanding North Sea Canada market. It is the most modern and versatile DSV in the world, thanks to its latest technology diving control system, 400 Te box boom crane, large deck area, working moonpool and work-class remotely operated vehicles (ROVs). Deep Explorer is capable of working globally on diving and subsea construction projects, even in extreme weather conditions. It will commence operational duties in 2017.

Technip operates a leading-edge fleet of 18 vessels (with another 4 under construction) focused in pipeline installation and subsea construction on all continents.

“We are proud to welcome the Deep Explorer, an impressive key asset for the Technip fleet and for our clients. My sincere thanks to all those in Technip and our partner companies who have contributed to this successful project,” said Bruno Faure, Technip’s senior VP subsea projects and operations.

“Deep Explorer represents a technological quantum leap, thanks to the excellent teamwork between Technip, JFD and VARD. The knowledge, skills and experience of all parties involved have been key factors in achieving the design and build of this impressive vessel,” added Dag Vikestrand, yard director and senior VP at Vard Langsten.
