Subsea 7, a global leader in sea bed-to-surface engineering, construction and services to the offshore energy industry, has added the specially adapted new build Jack-up accommodation and crane barge, the Seven Inagha, to its fleet.
The Seven Inagha is effectively a vessel with legs and, unlike most conventional jack-ups, can mobilise to a work site under her own power. Having two 295 tonne cranes, with the impressive ability to use them both in tandem, gives the Seven Inagha a great deal of versatility and operational flexibility.
With enhanced facilities able to accommodate up to 150 people on board, she will provide utility services and support to hook-up teams on offshore installations. The vessel’s first project is on the OSO field in Nigeria.
Commenting on her arrival, Olivier Carre, Subsea 7’s Senior Vice President for Africa and the Gulf of Mexico, said: “The Seven Inagha is an impressive vessel. She gives us the ability to offer new services to our clients in West Africa as the offshore industry experiences high levels of activity.”
Subsea 7 manages and operates a fleet of over 40 high-specification vessels. Ongoing investment, in excess of $2 billion in recent years, has enabled us to develop and enhance our world-class fleet of vessels.
