Subsea 7 completes fleet investment programme
Subsea 7, a global leader in seabed-to-surface engineering, construction and services, has taken delivery of Seven Arctic and Seven Kestrel, successfully completing a substantial and targeted fleet investment programme that has added six new-build vessels to the Subsea 7 fleet since 2014.
Seven Arctic is a heavy construction flex-lay vessel designed to meet the demands of deep water and harsh environments. Capable of working at depths of 3,000 metres, the vessel features a 1,000t offshore crane and a 600t top tension (tiltable) lay system.
Seven Kestrel is a modern dive support vessel, certified by DNV-GL, encompassing an 18-man twin-bell saturation diving system rated to 300m water depth.
These vessels were built to a high specification, designed by Subsea 7 engineers in collaboration with Hyundai Heavy Industries Shipyard in Ulsan, South Korea and Wärtsilä Ship Design, Norway, to maximise their efficiency, capacity and economy.
