Damen Completes Global 1200 Upgrade
Deepwater rigid pipe S-lay and heavy lift vessel ‘Global 1200’ has left Damen Shiprepair Rotterdam, after a major upgrade.
The vessel arrived at the yard in January 2015 and underwent special periodical survey works, upgrades and operational modifications, Damen informed through social media.
The upgrade works were divided into 3 packages: (i) dry-docking for Special Periodical Survey and various maintenance repair works, (ii) modifications to upgrade the vessel DP capability, and (iii) various pipelay equipment upgrades for future projects.
‘Global 1200’, owned by Technip, is now heading towards Angola for deployment.
The vessel was designed by Ulstein Sea of Solutions (SoS) of the Netherlands and built by Singapore-based Keppel Singmarine in 2010.
