Royal IHC has received an honor award from Sapura Navegação Marítima for the delivery of five pipelaying vessels.
On June 21, 2016, Royal IHC concluded the project with the delivery of the pipelaying vessel, Sapura Rubi.
Arjan Klijnsoon, director shipbuilding, said: “IHC is very thankful for this recognition. The project was impressive; all five vessels were completely designed, engineered and built by IHC.”
The five vessels, namely Sapura Diamante, Sapura Topazio, Sapura Ônix, Sapura Jade and Sapura Rubi, are all equipped with a pipelaying spread designed and built by IHC, and two below-deck storage carousels.
All these vessels are destined for Brazilian waters to develop deep-sea oil fields of up to 2,500 meters on behalf of Petrobras.
