More details on Wellships' intervention vessel Vessel & ROV News
// September 21, 2001
The Wellships Group has revealed more details of its Memorandum of Understanding with Van der Giessen de-Noord shipyard in the Netherlands for the construction of a purpose-built well intervention vessel - the first monohull unit of its type, which is designed to meet new classification rules for such vessels.
Wellships says the dynamically positioned vessel will be the first of its kind built to the new class rules developed by Det Norske Veritas (DNV) specifically for ship-shaped well intervention units.
It will incorporate state-of-the art control systems to enable safe and cost-effective support for working downhole on subsea wellheads. With a highly developed and integrated well intervention package, the dedicated vessel will comply with the most stringent regional requirements for well maintenance operations.
Bringing together a team with considerable industry experience, Wellships Contracting Limited, Aberdeen, will operate the 116m long vessel when it becomes available in Spring, 2003.
