The keel-laying ceremony for CEONA's multifunction rigid and flexible pipelay and construction vessel, Ceona Amazon, took place at CRIST shipyard in Poland on 14 August.
Hull fabrication will take place at the yard before Ceona Amazon is sailed to Lloyd Werft Bremerhaven for outfitting. When completed, the vessel will be 199.4m long with a 32.2m beam. The pipelay system, built by Huisman, will feature an inclinable lay spread with a top tension of 570 tonnes and a rigid firing line system.
With capacity to carry 9,000 tonnes of pipe, Ceona Amazon will be equipped to lay rigid and flexible pipelines and umbilicals, and to install subsea structures using one or both of its 400 tonne subsea cranes, also built by Huisman.
