|Imtech Marine completes three offshore ships|
|Tuesday, 17 April 2012 14:02|
Imtech Marine has successfully completed three innovative new-build vessel projects in Singapore; 'Seven Borealis' for Subsea 7, 'Rockpiper' for a subsidiary of Royal Boskalis Westminster NV and 'Flintstone' for Tideway, part of the DEME Group. The ships will all operate in the oil and gas market.
Imtech Marine has combined specific capabilities of its offices in Rotterdam, Shanghai and Singapore. The supply package for two of the three ships includes advanced dynamic positioning (DP), diesel electric propulsion, vessel management (VMS), automation, navigation and communication. The design and engineering was done in Rotterdam, production in Shanghai and installation & commissioning by the Imtech Marine team in Singapore.
"We were able to guarantee the specific competences in our worldwide network in the most efficient way", explains Eric van den Adel, Managing Director of Imtech Marine. "Imtech Marine has the in-house expertise to integrate technical systems on board and to anticipate the complex balance of engines, DP-system and thrusters. This, combined with our globally coordinated operation, makes us a strategic partner for our clients. A partner who offers services and solutions throughout the entire life cycle of a ship, both during construction and throughout the operational phase through service and maintenance."
'Flintstone' is built completely in line with the âLloyds Environmental Protection Codeâ, realizing a minimal emission of nitrogen oxide. The energy generated as a result of the lowering of the fall pipe is returned to the shipâs electricity net, installed by Imtech Marine. Imtech also installed the diesel electric propulsion system. Tideway can also deploy 'Flintstone' in the Arctic Ocean thanks to its ice notification. The ship, with its fall pipe of 2,000m, can also be put to use in the deeper oil fields of Brazil, West Africa and the Gulf of Mexico. This is in line with the need for deep-sea mining activities in order to meet the demands for energy in the future.
