Oceaneering Christens MSV Ocean Evolution
Oceaneering International has officially christened its newest vessel, MSV Ocean Evolution in Galveston, Texas.
The Houston-based subsea engineering specialist recently took delivery of the advanced subsea construction support vessel.
The vessel completed sea trials and received all necessary ABS and U.S. Coast Guard certifications.
According to Oceaneering, the Ocean Evolution is the most advanced, U.S.-flagged, Jones Act-compliant, multi-service vessel (MSV) in the market.
The vessels’ capabilities are headlined by its 250 mT active heave compensated (AHC) crane, two work-class remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) with AHC launch systems, survey systems and subsea tooling all built for work in up to 4,000 m water depths.
