Photo: ‘Lewek Constellation’ on its way to Gulf of Mexico gig
EMAS, the operating brand of Ezra Holdings, has shared a photo of their vessel, the Lewek Constellation, shown offshore Bermuda, getting ready to sail to Texas.
The vessel was hired by Noble Energy for its inaugural pipe-lay project in the Gulf of Mexico. It is scheduled to start working in the first quarter of 2015 with its work schedule extending well into 2016 and beyond. It will be utilised for the installation work, which will take place in water depths in excess of 2,000m.
The Lewek Constellation was named in March prior to its Gulf of Mexico gig.
It is an ice-classed, multi-lay offshore construction vessel with ultra-deep water pipe laying and heavy lift capabilities. The vessel measures 178.27 metres by 46.0 metres, and sports all single berth cabins, and is designed to deliver complex projects in water depths exceeding 3,000 metres.
It is equipped with an 800 mT Huisman multi-lay system that is able to support both rigid and non-rigid pipelines, a 3000 mT Huisman offshore heavy lift crane, two Schilling workclass remotely operated vehicles (WROVs) and a portable reel system.
