Construction Vessels of the World onlineNews // December 15, 2000
If you are looking for a source of information that will give you direct access to detailed specifications for every vessel involved in the support of offshore exploration, field development, production, R&M and decommissioning operations, then this online database is it.
The latest edition covers more vessels - more than 800 in total - provides more technical and specification details for each, and has more photographs and general arrangement drawings, making it the definitive register on the subject.
As you would expect, within the database you'll find detailed pages on all newbuilds and vessels currently under construction plus ships brought in from other trades for conversion to fulfil offshore construction roles.
Contents include full details of ownership/management, build/conversion dates, class, specifications, propulsion, capacities and a wide range of additional operating data is included for the following classes of vessels: saturation diving support vessels; multipurpose vessels; accommodation units; derrick lay barges; heavy lift vessels; well stimulation ships; cable, umbilical and flexible lay vessels; pipelay vessels/barges; pipe/flowline bury spreads; derrick/crane barges and ships; pontoon/deck transportation/launch barges; specialist decommissioning vessels; lift vessels; plus a complete directory of all vessel owners, operators and managers.
