VIDEO: Bravenes Subsea Rock Installation Vessel Launch

The video shows the launch of the Van Oord’s E169 fall-pipe subsea rock installation (SRI) vessel ‘Bravenes’ at Sinopacific’s  Zhejiang Shipyard in China.

Van Oord awarded the design and equipment contract for ‘Bravenes’ to Ulstein in September 2014 and contracted Sinopacific for the construction of the vessel.

Ulstein 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 meters and a beam of 28 meters, the vessel can operate in water depths of more than 600 meters.
