Royal IHC launches Seven Cruzeiro and officially names Seven Sun

The Seven Cruzeiro is the final vessel in a series of three ordered by Subsea 7

In addition, the Seven Sun, launched in December 2014 in Kinderdijk and the second vessel of the series, was officially named. Both vessels are dynamically positioned pipe-lay vessels capable of operating in water depths of up to 3,000m and suitable for operations worldwide. They are 145.9m long, 30m wide, have a scantling draught of 8.5m and offer accommodation for 120 people. Designed by IHC in close collaboration with Subsea 7, each vessel is fitted with two under-deck storage carousels with a capacity of 2,500 tonnes and 1,500 tonnes of product, respectively.
A vertical (tiltable) lay system with a 550-tonne top tension capacity is permanently installed for the deployment of a range of flexible products with a diameter of 50-650mm. The lay tower can operate at up to 10° from the vertical and is fitted with two wire centralisers and with two tensioners, each with a 275-tonne capacity, that can be retracted clear of the firing line. The pipe-laying systems are delivered by Huisman.

Royal IHC has named and launched the 550-tonne top tension capacity pipe-lay vessel, Seven Cruzeiro, at its shipyard in Krimpen aan den IJssel. This is the final pipe-laying vessel in a series of three ordered by Subsea 7.
