The vessel will be a sister ship of the recently completed subsea construction vessel, “Lay Vessel North Ocean 105” (“LV105”), and is to be built to similar specifications at Metalships and Docks SAU shipyard in Vigo, Spain. 
“LV108” is designed for advanced deep-water operations with a high-capacity tower for rigid and flexible pipe-lay and state-of-the-art marine construction equipment that will enable installation of a variety of products to a depth of 3,000m, including rigid-reeled pipelines, subsea components and hardware, and deepwater moorings for floating facilities as well as flexible products such as cables and umbilicals.
The vertical reel will have a nominal payload of 2,500 tonnes plus, subject to vessel loading conditions, and a lay tower operational between 90 and 40 degrees. The nominal tension capacity is expected to be 400 tonnes.  Equipped with a 400-tonne heave compensated crane, the 130m-long, DP vessel has a transit speed of 15 knots.
Delivery of “LV108” is scheduled for the third quarter of 2014. 

EPCI company McDermott International, Inc has announced that it will build another high-capacity reeled pipe-lay vessel with top-tier payload capacity, tentatively named “Lay Vessel 108” (“LV108”).
