    Naming ceremony for held for cable lay vessel Siem Aimery

    Vessel & ROV News // May 5, 2016

    The cable lay vessel Siem Aimery, the latest addition to the Siem Offshore fleet, was named on 27 April 2016 at Remontowa Shipbuilding in Gdansk, Poland. The vessel will now undergo final mobilisation prior to commencing cable loading activities for its first project assignment.

    Regis Rougier, Managing Director of Siem Offshore Contractors, said: "I am delighted to have Siem Aimery in our fleet, and Siem Moxie and Siem Aimery working in tandem."

    Siem Aimery was designed for the installation and repair of medium and high voltage submarine cables. Having two carousels low in the vessel’s hull and a hangar-based cable deck, the vessel was specifically designed to work in the adverse weather conditions.

    Siem Offshore Contractors has a long term charter agreement with Siem Offshore and will be responsible for the cable laying operations of the vessel.

    Siem Aimery and her installation partner vessel, Siem Moxie, will be installing the inner array grid and export cable systems for the Nordsee One offshore windfarm in the coming months. Thereafter the vessel will continue with the winter installation campaign of the inner array grid cable system of the Veja Mate offshore windfarm in the German Bight.
