Subsea 7 said: “We are pleased to add Seven Vega, one of the most capable and cost-effective reel-lay vessels in the market, to our fleet. The vessel is an important, long-term investment and sets a new standard for offshore pipelay. It has been purposely designed to install economical flowline technologies that address the growing market trend towards longer tie-back developments. This includes complex pipe-in-pipe, piggyback and electrically heat traced flowline systems, risers, umbilicals and structures in water depths up to 3,000m.
Seven Vega is now operational and is loading pipe for its first project.
