photo-skandi-buziosHuisman, the specialist in lifting, drilling, and subsea solutions, welcomed the pipe lay support vessel (PLSV) ‘Skandi Buzios’ at the its Schiedam quayside for the installation of a 650mt pipelay tower.

Scaldis’ heavy lift vessel, Rambiz, has earlier this week installed the pipelay tower onboard the PLSV. Huisman said the vessel will be fully commissioned in the next months before it leaves its Schiedam quayside for its first job.

Skandi Búzios is a twin of the Skandi Açu. Both vessels are designed and built by VARD specifically for installation of umbilicals, flexible flowlines and risers in Brazil.

The vessel has a length of 146 meters, and a beam of 30 meters. Like its sister vessel and also part of the DOF Subsea – Technip joint venture in Brazil, the Skandi Buzios is fit to accommodate 120 persons, and work in water depths of up to 3,000 meters.
