McDermott names construction support vesselVessel & ROV News // September 12, 2014
McDermott International has formally named its construction support vessel (CSV) CSV 108 at Metalships & Docks shipyard in Vigo, Spain.
The shipyard hosted a naming ceremony attended by Tony Duncan, Executive Vice President, Subsea for McDermott and Manuel Rodríguez, Chairman of Metalships & Docks, SAU, local dignitaries and project staff.
“We expect the CSV108 to join the fleet in 2015, once the final deck equipment has been installed,” said Mr Duncan. “The vessel will service the needs of the subsea market as a construction support vessel, and should our client requirements for pipelay require additional capacity in the future, the versatility of CSV108 allows us to convert it for pipelay services.”
CSV108 will immediately transit to Norway for the installation of two portside active heave compensated cranes for the final stage in its construction.
