Lloyd’s Register (LR) has presented Shanghai Merchant Ship Design and Research Institute with approval in principle (AiP) for a J-lay heavy lift vessel concept design.

The vessel’s primary function will be deep-water pipe-laying, subsea installation and heavy lifting in deep sea.

Mr Li Lu, Shanghai Merchant Ship Design and Research Institute’s assistant president & marketing director, said, “We have a strong, long-standing relationship with Chinese oil majors and we can now provide them with more opportunities in the oil fields and other offshore construction projects with this new concept design."

Thomas Aschert, LR's North Europe area manager for marine & offshore, who presented the AiP certificate, said, “Shanghai Merchant Ship Design and Research Institute is a leading design company in China and we are really proud to award this AiP."

The J-lay heavy lift vessel concept design has been purposely designed for a Chinese oil major, in support of the rapid growth of offshore demand in the local market. It will provide more opportunities to oil majors in the Shanghai region who can now develop deep water oil fields. It will also be the first of its kind to be developed by the Shanghai Merchant Ship Design and Research Institute with cooperation of an oil major.
