Huisman Equipment has installed the 570mt Pipelay System onboard Ceona’s Ceona Amazon at the Huisman Schiedam quayside, the company informed through their social media.
In December last year, Huisman welcomed Ceona’s Amazon newbuild pipelay vessel following it’s delivery and christening in Bremerhaven.
The vessel’s outfitting at Bremerhaven followed successful floatation at Crist yard in Poland earlier this year in April before all major machinery, equipment and the helideck were installed in Germany.
The Ceona Amazon is 199.4 metres long and 32.2 metres wide, drawing 8.0 metres with a gross tonnage of 33,000. The vessel is due to enter service early 2015.
With capacity to carry 8,500 tonnes of pipe, the Ceona Amazon will be able to lay rigid and flexible pipelines and umbilicals, and install heavy subsea structures or floaters (TLP, semi or FPSO) using its two 400 tonne subsea cranes working in tandem.
