WATCH: PLSV SAPURA ÔNIX Naming Ceremony

WATCH PLSV SAPURA ÔNIX Naming Ceremony 2The following video shows the naming ceremony of the pipelaying vessel SAPURA ÔNIX.

The Sapura Ônix was launched at the Royal IHC shipyard in Krimpen aan den IJssel, near Rotterdam, in August last year.

In April this year, Royal IHC named the vessel, at the same shipyard.

The naming ceremony was carried out by Dahlia Abdul Aziz, spouse of Alex Monsen, JV Board Member and VP of New Build/Senior Vice President of Seadrill.

The SAPURA ÔNIX was ordered by Sapura Navegação Marítima, a joint venture between SapuraKencana and Seadrill. The vessel is the third in a series of five fully integrated pipelaying vessels that will be completely designed, engineered and built by IHC.

After delivery, the SAPURA ÔNIX is, like her sister vessels, the SAPURA DIAMANTE, SAPURA TOPÁZIO and SAPURA JADE destined to travel to Brazilian waters to develop deep-sea oilfields of up to 2,500 metres on behalf of Petrobras.

Furthermore, on the same day, Royal IHC has named and launched the pipelaying vessel SAPURA JADE.

The 550t vessel, like the SAPURA ÔNIX, will be equipped with a pipelaying spread designed and built by IHC, and two below-deck storage carousels, with capacities for 2,500t and 1,500t of product respectively.
