Croonwolter&dros and Bakker Sliedrecht have obtained the order to engineer, manufacturer, install and commission the complete electrical installation of the new reel lay vessel that Royal IHC is building for Subsea 7.
The vessel is intended for the installation of complex rigid flowlines, including pipe-in-pipe and electrical trace heating systems. This cost-effective technology will address the market trends towards longer tie-back developments.
Bakker Sliedrecht and Croonwolter&dros will integrate all electrical installations of the vessel.
Delivery of the vessel is scheduled for the first half 2020. The project team of Croonwolter&dros and Bakker is working on-site at the shipyard of Royal IHC in the Netherlands to ensure collaboration between all key suppliers.
The integrated reel lay vessel will be the ninth vessel for Subsea 7 that will be fitted with an electrical installation of Croonwolter&dros and Bakker Sliedrecht. These nine vessels were also designed and built by Royal IHC.
Croonwolter&dros will focus on the low voltage installations, Bakker Sliedrecht will focus on the high voltage installations and drive systems.
