Van Oord’s Rock Installation Newbuild Launched in China

Van Oord’s E169 fall-pipe subsea rock installation (SRI) vessel ‘Bravenes’ was launched at Sinopacific’s  Zhejiang Shipyard in China.

In September 2014, Sinopacific Shipbuilding and Van Oord announced the construction contract of the SRI vessel, expected to be delivered in 2016.

The ‘Bravenes’ is designed by Ulstein, where the Norwegian company was responsible for the development and integration of both the mission equipment and vessel design. Under the contract Ulstein also committed to supply the main fall pipe deployment system and the majority of the ancillary systems of the SRI tower.

The DP-3 vessel design features the distinct X-BOW hull line.

With a deadweight of 14,000t, a length of 154 metres and a beam of 28 metres, the vessel can operate in water depths of more than 600 metres and can accommodate 60 people.
