Huisman Installs Pipelay Tower Onboard Seven Rio

Huisman, the specialist in lifting, drilling, and subsea solutions, has completed the setup of 550mt Pipelay Tower onboard the Subsea 7’s Seven Rio at its facility in Schiedam.

In November last year, IHC successfully launched the 550t pipelaying vessel at its shipyard in Krimpen aan den IJssel, The Netherlands.

In August 2013, IHC secured the orders from Subsea 7 for three ships of the same design to Seven Waves.

With an overall length of 146 metres, a beam of 30 metres and a Class-2 dynamic positioning system, these vessels will be equipped for transporting and installing flexible flowlines and umbilicals in water depths of up to 3,000 metres.

The three PLSVs, the Seven Rio, Seven Sun and Seven Cruzeiro, linked to long-term contracts awarded by Petrobras, are expected to be delivered in 2015 and 2016.
