    Allseas to start building Pieter Schelte

    Vessel & ROV News // November 18, 2009

    Allseas Group has announced that it plans to start construction of the platform installation/decommissioning and pipelay vessel Pieter Schelte.

    The company, free of debt, has sufficient funds to build Pieter Schelte, and will award the contract to a shipyard in the spring of 2010.

    The basic design of the hull has been completed, and the basic design of the lifting systems will be completed this year. The detailed design contract was awarded in February 2009 and will be completed in March 2010.

    Long-lead items, such as the power generation equipment and the thrusters, were ordered in March 2007. In June 2008, the high-tensile steel for the jacket and topsides lift systems were ordered. The total value of these orders was 200 million Euros.

    Delivery of the completed vessel is expected in 2013.
