General – Service Assignment
The subsea vessel Island Constructor, build 279 from Ulstein Verft, will return to the yard in January for a service assignment.
The ship will finish a well service campaign just after year-end and go to Bergen to remove the well service equipment that has been on board for 14 years.
It will be replaced with next-generation subsea equipment, and the ship will then proceed to Ulstein Verft, where new equipment will be integrated.
Ulstein has already been involved in reviewing the changes that need to be made.
“The equipment will be adapted in the hangar, on the deck, in the tower and the ship in general”, says Trond-Eivind Larsen, who is the topside group leader at the operator company TIOS, a part of the TechnipFMC group.
Various other service work will also be carried out, including installing a ballast water treatment system (BWTS) and overhauling the engines.
