WATCH: Outfitting of Harvey MPSV Twins

The video above shows outfitting of the sister multi-purpose support vessels (MPSVs) the Harvey Sub-Sea and the Harvey Blue-Sea at Florida-based Eastern Shipbuilding for Harvey Gulf International Marine.

The Harvey Sub-Sea (Hull 249) is a first of two MPSVs, designed by VARD Marine and launched on November 6, 2015. The launch of the Harvey Blue-Sea (Hull 250) took place on April 29, 2016.

The agreement for the construction of the vessels was announced in May 2013.

The delivery of the Harvey Sub-Sea is expected in 2016, after outfitting and sea trials are completed, while the Harvey Blue-Sea is anticipated to deliver in early 2017.

The vessels, with a length of 103.7 meters, and a beam of 22.3 meters, feature a 250MT AHC knuckle boom offshore crane with lift capabilities in up to 4000 meters of water, a helideck and accommodations of up to 150 crew and offshore workers.

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
