We are proud of this achievement in line with the spirit of excellence we are developing in the company.”
Steve Preston, Ceona’s Chief Executive Officer, commented: “Stuart Cameron and I are determined to achieve Ceona’s goal to be recognised globally as a contractor delivering safer and smarter solutions.

Ceona, which has offices in London, Aberdeen and Houston, is progressing with the construction of new build support vessels. Its flagship vessel, the Ceona Amazon, is a multi-functional vessel capable of operating in multiple pipelay mode installing both rigid/flexible pipe and umbilicals. At 199 metres long, it is equipped for heavy lifting with two 400 deepwater cranes, and has capacity to carry more than 9,000 tonnes of rigid pipe. The Ceona Amazon is due to enter service in January 2015.
The Polar Onyx is a high-capacity flexible pipelay and construction vessel designed to the highest standard for dynamic positioning, DP-3, and equipped with a 250t AHC offshore crane. Like the Ceona Amazon, it is capable of installing pipeline and umbilicals to depths of 3,000 metres. Recently floated out of dry dock in Norway, the Polar Onyx is on track for delivery in April 2014.
