VIDEO: Havila Phoenix Subsea Vessel

The Havila Phoenix is a dynamically positioned multi-role ice class construction vessel.


The Phoenix is a construction, installation and trenching support vessel available for subsea operations and is equipped with 250te active heave compensated offshore crane, 1500m 2 deck area, 140 berth accommodation and optional 2000te carousel.

This combination of features means that this one vessel can perform all of the combined construction and trenching requirements, even in remote locations.

In addition, the vessel is permanently mobilised with the ultimate trenching spread. At the heart of this spread is the T-3200 trencher, an advanced, 3200 horse power, track based machine, equipped with a high sea state handling system. Capable of working in a combination of mechanical cutting and jetting modes, this vehicle offers a step change in burial capability for all sectors of the subsea energy industry.

As the world’s largest trencher, it offers unrivalled performance in terms of speed, soil conditions and trench depth. A 1000 HP jet trenching ROV and two high specification WROV’s provide additional on board capabilities. The large deck space and optional carousel also provide a leading capability for the installation of flexible pipelines and cables, subsea structures and hardware.
