Damen Nets MSV Seawell Upgrade

Damen Shiprepair Vlissingen, part of Damen Shiprepair & Conversion, has been awarded a major upgrade job on MSV SEAWELL (light well intervention/dive support vessel) by Helix UK.

The SEAWELL is expected at the yard second half of December 2014.

As the upgrade will be executed over the winter season, Damen Shiprepair Vlissingen (DSV) has offered their covered dry-dock with a 300 tons overhead crane. “Continuous work without weather delays are of the essence for such project. This in combination with the proven track record DSV has with Helix were decision making factors,” states Edwin Ruppert,  Area Manager UK for Damen Shiprepair & Conversion.

The upgrade includes an exchange of all 6 gensets including new foundations, overhaul of all thrusters and azimuths, replacement of 2 cherry pickers and the existing twin slewing cranes by a new single boom 50T crane with active heave compensation. All switchboards will be renewed and the accommodation will be dealt with thoroughly. One of the long leading items is the demolishing of the existing derrick and installment of a new derrick with all associated equipment.

Next to the installation of the derrick lots of adjustments will be made on the functioning and operation of the moon pool doors, winches and other equipment. The statutory docking will also commence during this refit period.

Jeroen Heesters, Managing Director of Damen Shiprepair Vlissingen is very pleased to be awarded for this refit after 2 years of hard work together with the Helix project team. “The successful completion of the Rowan Viking upgrade earlier this year gave a significant step upwards in DSV’s project organization and will contribute to the successful completion of the SEAWELL upgrade.”
