Pipelayers are vessels that are used for submerged laying of pipe. In most cases (depending on the vessel design) the same vessel can be used for other subsea tasks, such as subsea installation, cable / umbilical laying and heavy lift operations if it equipped with a heavy lift crane. Pipe-laying vessels could be Derrick lay barge (aka anchored vessels) or dynamically positioned (DP) which is required to ensure vessel stability during operations offshore. DP vessels bring more stability but cost significantly more than anchored vessels. A number of other support vessels are generally required during pipe laying operations, such as barges for transporting pipes (with concrete weight coating when required), vessels for touch-down monitoring and diving support vessels if required.
- Our pipelay vessels are capable of aiding the construction and maintenance of subsea infrastructure.
- Supports heavy lift cranes and other equipment acting as dual activity vessels.
- Maintains accuracy and efficiency in pipe laying in both shallow and deep waters.
