Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 7/16/2012, Location: Africa

Subsea 7, a global leader in seabed-to-surface engineering, construction and services to the offshore energy industry, celebrated the building of its flagship vessel, the Seven Borealis, at an event in Schiedam near Rotterdam, the Netherlands, on 7 and 8 July 2012. The Seven Borealis is Subsea 7’s flagship strategic enabler. It is a pipelay and heavy-lift vessel designed to meet the exacting requirements of today’s ultra-deep and deepwater projects, while maximising productivity and efficiency.

In a construction process that has taken place across half the world, having been initially constructed in China before moving to Singapore, where she was officially named at a ceremony on 7 January 2012. Final installation of the J-lay and S-lay pipelay equipment for the Seven Borealis is currently underway in the Netherlands.

In the second half of 2012, the Seven Borealis will travel to West Africa to commence work on its first project. She will start her anticipated long career in one of the largest projects ever awarded to Subsea 7 – the Total E&P Angola CLOV Development Project in the northern part of Angola Block 17.

At the celebration with investors, clients and suppliers, Subsea 7 Chief Executive Officer Jean Cahuzac said: “The Seven Borealis is truly a world-class vessel and the best in its class. Building this vessel is the result of a vision of what such a vessel can bring to the industry and the expertise and dedication of many experienced people. “We have built the Seven Borealis with our clients’ needs in mind and the changing demands of subsea engineering. The Seven Borealis meets these new demands and is positioned to serve us and our clients well.”
