Subsea 7 Expands Fleet with Two Newbuild Vessels

Seven Kestrel

Subsea 7, a  provider of seabed-to-surface engineering, construction and services, has taken delivery of two newbuild vessels, Seven Arctic and Seven Kestrel. 

With this delivery, Subsea 7 has completed its fleet investment programme that has added six newbuild vessels to the company’s fleet since 2014.

Seven Arctic is a heavy construction flex-lay vessel designed to meet the demands of deep water and harsh environments. Capable of working at depths of 3,000 metres, the vessel features a 1,000t offshore crane and a 600t top tension (tiltable) lay system.

Seven Kestrel is a dive support vessel, certified by DNV-GL, encompassing an 18-man twin-bell saturation diving system rated to 300m water depth.

These vessels were designed by Subsea 7 engineers in collaboration with Hyundai Heavy Industries Shipyard in Ulsan, South Korea and Wärtsilä Ship Design, Norway.

John Evans, Chief Operating Officer said: “We have one of the most modern, capable and diverse fleets of vessels in our market segment that differentiates our industry leading service. The arrival of Seven Arctic and Seven Kestrel further strengthens our fleet and client offering.

“Seven Arctic delivers an important step change in our subsea construction capability, particularly in ultra-deep water fields which pose increasingly technical challenges, whilst Seven Kestrel reinforces our leading diving capabilities.”

The company stated that both vessels will transit to the North Sea for further crew familiarisation before starting operations in the spring.
