        McDermott公司在荷兰鹿特丹港为其新改装的“Amazon”号船舶举行了船舶命名仪式。
 
        作为McDermott公司全球深水海底战略的一部分,该船经历了从建筑船到超深水J型铺管船的 “复杂 ”改造。
 
        McDermott公司表示,改造升级后的船舶规格能够实现高度自动化操作,利用船上的多接头设施从单接头或双接头生产出六角接头,并具有1万公吨的管道容纳能力。
 
        据该公司称,这艘船舶自动化水平的提高也大大节省了安全执行铺管作业所需的船员数量。
 
         据悉,该船具有自给自足型的设计系统,可以轻松地从一个项目过渡到另一个项目,并能为McDermott公司其他海底作业船队提供过渡机会。
 
        McDermott公司海底和浮动设施部高级副总裁Mahesh Swaminathan声称:“全球客户都在期待使用这艘能带来颠覆性改变的船舶交付其超深海项目。世界一流的管道系统、船舶设备的多功能性和升级后的先进技术大大增强了船舶提供安全、高质成果的有效性。”
 
        值得注意的是,“Amazon”号早在2019年7月就抵达鹿特丹开始了改造工作。
 
        总部设在荷兰的Royal IHC公司负责该船J型铺管系统的设计和建造,以及整个改造项目的统筹管理工作。
 
        船体改造包括拆除现有铺管系统后,使用新一套J型铺管系统,其最高动态容量达1500吨。
 
        改造工作完成后,“Amazon”号船舶将根据McDermott 公司于去年9月签下的EPCI合同,在墨西哥湾Alaminos峡谷开展“Whale”项目的开发工作。

McDermott christens ultra-deepwater J-Lay vessel
 
McDermott has held the christening ceremony for its newly converted Amazon vessel in the Port of Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
 
The vessel has undergone a “sophisticated” conversion from a construction vessel into an ultra-deepwater J-Lay vessel as part of McDermott’s global deepwater subsea strategy.
 
The upgraded specifications enable highly automated operations, the production of hex joints from single or double joints using an onboard multi-joint facility and a pipe hold capacity of 10,000 metric tons, McDermott said.
 
According to the company, the vessel’s increased level of automation also enables a significant reduction in the crew numbers required to safely perform pipelay operations.
 
 The vessel is said to be designed to be self-sufficient, allowing easy transition from project to project and providing pull-through opportunities for the rest of the McDermott subsea fleet.
 
“Customers around the world are looking to this game changing vessel to deliver their ultra-deepwater projects,” said Mahesh Swaminathan, senior vice president, Subsea and Floating Facilities at McDermott. “The world-class pipeline system, installation versatility and advanced technology behind the upgrade significantly elevates its ability to efficiently deliver safe, quality-driven results.”
 
To remind, Amazon arrived in Rotterdam to start its transformation back in July 2019.
 
Dutch-based Royal IHC was in charge of the design and build of the vessel’s J-Lay system and overall management of the modification project.
 
The physical modifications included the removal of the existing pipelay system and its replacement with a new J-lay system with a top dynamic capacity of 1,500 tonnes.
 
Following the completion of the conversion, Amazon will work on the Whale development in Alaminos Canyon in the Gulf of Mexico, under an EPCI contract that McDermott won in September last year.
