Flensburger-Schiffbau-Gesellschaft (FSG) recently marked the start of a new era by successfully handing over AMAZON WARRIOR to its customer Western-Geco.
“In the specialised shipbuilding sector, this is the most important ship we have built in the past 20 years. She has opened a door for us into a market segment which will help to secure the future of our concern,” said FSG Managing Director Peter Sierk.
Speaking during the hand-over ceremony he also recalled the orders signed just this spring for two further offshore ships for Siem Offshore for charter to Helix Energy Solutions.
“We are making our mark in this market segment, drawing attention to ourselves because of our outstanding performance and working to create follow-up orders. We are very proud of all of this,” the yard chief said.
On behalf of all the shipbuilders in Flensburg Sierk thanked the company. It has however been demonstrated yet again, Sierk went on, that high quality, absolute contract and deadline reliability, broad-based engineering competence, passion and tailor made ship designs provided a healthy foundation on which Flensburg shipbuilders could build.
The AMAZON WARRIOR is an Amazon-class vessel that features the world’s first custom-built hull and propulsion system, developed exclusively for seismic operations using a WesternGeco proprietary design. As far as efficiency, safety, reliability and durability are concerned; this vessel meets the highest of demands and supports secure operation anywhere the ship operates, including the Polar Regions, even in the most inhospitable weather conditions.
