TechnipFMC diving support and light construction vessel (DSV) Deep Discoverer recently completed her first ever reel drive system mobilization and flexible reel load out in Peterhead, Scotland.
Deep Discoverer is a purpose built DSV, primarily servicing the North Sea diving, construction, Inspection, Repair and Maintenance (IRM) markets.
DSV was added to TechnipFMC’s international fleet of subsea pipelay, diving and construction ships on 11th March 2019.
The company signed a deal with VARD shipyard in Norway to purchase the vessel in late 2018.
Earlier this year, 121m long vessel undergoes an operational readiness programme to conduct reel drive system mobilization and flexible reel load out work in the first half of 2019.
Deep Discoverer has DP3 capabilities, as well as an 18-person twin bell saturation diving system, in-built air diving spread and a 250 Te NOV Hydralift subsea crane.
