Damen Gets ‘Global 1200’ Upgrade Job from Technip

Damen Shiprepair Rotterdam (DSR) has been awarded a contract by Technip, for dry-docking, upgrades and operational modifications to the deepwater rigid pipe S-lay and heavy lift vessel, the Global 1200. 

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 commented: “The successful completion of the Stanislav Yudin upgrade earlier this year gave a significant step upwards in DSR’s project management and QHES organization and this will contribute to the successful completion of the Global 1200 upgrade and modifications works.”

Global 1200 arrived at Damen’s yard in January 2015, the company informed.
