Subsea 7 ready for newbuild reel-lay vessel launch

Seven Vega vessel design

UK-based subsea engineering, construction, and services company Subsea 7 is ready for a launch and official naming ceremony for its newbuild reel-lay vessel Seven Vega. 

Subsea 7 announced through its social media channels on Friday that the Seven Vega will be launched and officially named on Saturday, May 25.

“When delivered, Seven Vega will be one of the most capable and cost-effective reel-lay vessels in the market and a global enabler for Subsea 7.

“It has been designed to deliver economical technologies that address the growing market trend towards longer tie-back developments,” the company added.

Subsea 7 ordered the new reel lay vessel from Royal IHC back in October 2017. The vessel will be capable of installing complex rigid flowlines including pipe-in-pipe systems.

In February 2018, Royal IHC passed the first significant milestones in the design and build process of an integrated reel lay vessel and ordered a marine compressed air system from TMC and electrical installations from Croonwolter&dros and Bakker Sliedrecht. The first steel was cut in March that year.

Come July 2018 and Royal IHC held the keel laying ceremony for the Seven Vega in Krimpen aan den IJssel (Netherlands).

The newbuild vessel is scheduled to be delivered in the first half of 2020.
