Swire Seabed Secures Work for Its New Subsea Vessel

Swire Seabed, a wholly owned subsidiary of Swire Pacific Offshore, has landed a six-year contract for the subsea support and construction vessel, Seabed Constructor, with UK-based Ocean Infinity.

The vessel will be carrying out AUV based survey and construction support operations on a global basis.

The company has taken delivery of the vessel from Olympic Ship this Tuesday. Following the delivery, Swire Seabed changed the vessel’s name from Olympic Athene to Seabed Constructor.

The vessel, of MT6022 MK II design, has a length of 115 meters and a beam of 22 meters, and is equipped with a 250-tonne crane and a free deck space of 1,300 square meters.

“The decision to invest in this high quality subsea vessel is part of Swire Seabed’s long-term growth strategy. Our contract with Ocean Infinity enables the company to establish a survey department that can process and present large quantities of high quality data to our clients,” said Arvid Pettersen, CEO of Swire Seabed.

In addition to Seabed Constructor, Swire Seabed has three other subsea vessels, Seabed Worker, Seabed Supporter and Seabed Prince.
