Damen Shiprepair Rotterdam (DSR) has secured a new contract from Technip, for dry-docking, upgrade and operational modification to the deepwater rigid pipe S-lay and heavy lift vessel, ‘Global 1200.’

DSR said that this new contact owes a lot to the successful life-time extension works undertaken from 2013 to 2014 on the Stanislav Yudin, which is owned and operated by Seaway Heavy Lifting.

Mark Witjens, managing director of Damen Shiprepair Rotterdam said he was pleased to see the contract materialise after six months of hard work with the Aberdeen and Houston based Technip project teams.

“The successful completion of the Stanislav Yudin upgrade gave a significant step upwards in DSR’s project management and QHES organisation and this will contribute to the successful completion of the Global 1200 upgrade and modifications works,” he said.

Ruud Haneveer, commercial manager offshore & conversion, Technip, added: “The major upgrade works are divided into three packages; - dry-docking for special periodical survey and various maintenance repair works, modifications to upgrade the vessel DP capability, and various pipelay equipment upgrades for future projects.”

The Global 1200, which arrived at the yard in January, is one of two deepwater rigid pipe S-lay and heavy lift vessels owned by Technip. It was designed by Ulstein Sea of Solutions (SoS) of the Netherlands and built by Singapore-based Keppel Singmarine.

Technip is a global leader in project management, engineering and construction for the energy industry. Its fleet currently consists of 21 vessels with an additional 6 currently under construction as of December 2014.
