McDermott Christens State-of-the-Art Amazon Vessel
18.06.2022McDermott International welcomed key customers aboard its newly converted Amazon vessel for a christening ceremony in the port of Rotterdam, The Netherlands.
McDermott customers and executives gather to christen the Amazon vessel on June 16, 2022, at Rotterdam Port, The Netherlands.
As part of McDermott's global deepwater subsea strategy, the vessel has undergone a sophisticated conversion. The upgraded specifications enable highly automated operations, the production of hex joints from single or double joints using an onboard multi-joint facility and a pipe hold capacity of 10,000 metric tons. Its increased level of automation also enables a significant reduction in the crew numbers required to safely perform pipelay operations.
"Customers around the world are looking to this game changing vessel to deliver their ultra-deepwater projects," said Mahesh Swaminathan, Senior Vice President, Subsea and Floating Facilities. "The world-class pipeline system, installation versatility and advanced technology behind the upgrade significantly elevates its ability to efficiently deliver safe, quality-driven results."
The vessel is designed to be self-sufficient, allowing easy transition from project to project and providing pull through opportunities for the rest of the McDermott subsea fleet.Location:
