Singapore-based Ultra Deep Solutions has held a keel-laying ceremony for its new diving support construction vessel (DSCV) Matisse at the China Merchants Heavy Industry shipyard.
CEO Shel Hutton said Matisse, which will be 145 metres long and have a 27-metre beam, would become the largest ship in the UDS fleet.
The DP3 Ice “C” class vessel will feature a 24-man twin bell saturation system and twin SPHL.
Matisse, which will be equipped with a 400-tonne Huisman crane that can reach water depths of 5200 metres, will have almost 30,000 cubic metres of helium storage. The back deck includes 2,200 square metres of open space.
