In 2007 she set the world record for ultra-deepwater pipeline installation, laying pipe to a depth of 2775 m (9100 ft). Solitaire’s high cruising speed, high laying speed and substantial carrying capacity make her competitive for pipelay projects anywhere in the world. The maintenance includes upgrading the current 330 metric ton crane, to 800 metric ton, a complicated job which will take a few months. Dutch owner Allseas Group is a global leader in offshore pipeline installation, heavy lift and subsea construction. http://www.heerema.com/content/ http://allseas.com/ De Solitaire heeft als bestemming de USA-terminal van de Ter Haak Groep in de Amsterdamse haven. Het overslagbedrijf is recent een joint venture aangegaan met Zwagerman Offshore Services voor het onderhoud en technische aanpassingen van onder meer werkschepen. Bij de Ter Haak Groep zal onder meer de oude hijskraan (300 ton) op de pijpenlegger worden gedemonteerd en vervangen worden door een 800 ton kraan, de werkzaamheden zullen enkele maanden duren. Eigenaar Allseas is een bedrijf op het gebied van offshore installatie van pijpleidingen voor olie- en gastransport. Het bedrijf heeft ruim 3000 medewerkers en een geschatte omzet van € 1,3 miljard. Het bedrijf is in handen van oprichter en ondernemer Edward Heerema. In 2014 telde de vloot van Allseas drie pijplegschepen (Solitaire, Lorelay en Audacia), een support schip (Calamity Jane) en een ponton (Tog Mor) in beheer. Tog Mor is ook een pijpenlegger maar kan door zijn geringe diepgang in zeer ondiep water actief zijn. http://www.heerema.com/content/ http://allseas.com/ Die Solitaire ist eines der weltweit größten Rohrlegeschiffe. Das Arbeitsschiff befindet sich im Eigentum des holländischer/ schweizerischen Offshore-Dienstleisters Allseas und fährt heute unter der Flagge von Panama. Sie wurde Ende 2014 von dem Neubau Pioneering Spirit als weltweit größter Rohrleger abgelöst. Nach ihrer Fertigstellung hat sie neue Standards in Bezug auf Verlegeleistung und -tiefe für die Pipelinelege-Industrie definiert. Im Gegensatz zu anderen Rohrlegern, die als Halbtaucher oder mit flachen Rümpfen konzipiert sind, besitzt es eine konventionelle Rumpfform. Damit erreicht die Solitaire hohe Transfergeschwindigkeiten, eine sehr gute Seegängigkeit und bietet im Rumpf und auf Deck viel Platz zum Arbeiten. Dies wird auch in der Lagerkapazität von 22.000 t Rohren deutlich, was sie, gerade bei Hochseeeinsätzen, unabhängiger von Versorgungsschiffen macht. Das Schiff bekam mit dem Umbau einen dieselelektrischen Antrieb. Die Basis dafür bilden acht Dieselmotoren des Typs Vasa 6 R 46 B des finnischen Unternehmens Wärtsilä mit einer Leistung von je 5.850 Kilowatt. Deren Leistung wird von acht Generatoren in elektrischen Strom umgewandelt, der wiederum für die Versorgung der Asynchronmotoren der ursprünglich acht Propellergondeln des Typs FS 3500-671 des Herstellers Lips verwendet wird. Im Rahmen der Aufrüstung 2009 wurden zwei weitere Propellergondeln am Heck ergänzt. http://www.heerema.com/content/ http://allseas.com/ Port of Amsterdam: http://www.portofamsterdam.com/ Opening timelapse by Ko van Leeuwen

www.ship-technology.com Castorone is an ice-class pipe laying vessel (PLV) being built for Saipem, a subsidiary of Italian energy company Eni. In her first job, the new vessel will be used to perform marine activities for the development of the Jack and Saint Malo (JSM) fields in the US Gulf of Mexico. She will be deployed in the first quarter of 2013 to transport and install a crude oil export pipeline. In March 2011, Keppel Shipyard, a subsidiary of Keppel Offshore & Marine, was contracted for the completion of the Castorone. The project is being jointly undertaken by Keppel Shipyard and its sister company Keppel Singmarine. The two companies are responsible for detailed engineering, fabricating marine systems and outfitting, and installation and integration of marine and pipe laying equipment. They are also responsible for commissioning the marine systems and conducting sea trials. The ship arrived at Keppel Shipyard for outfitting after being constructed in China. An official naming ceremony for the new build was held in Singapore in September 2012. The pipe layer is expected to be delivered in January 2013. Navalimpianti Tecnimpianti Group was contracted to design and assemble the vessel's pipe handling and storage system. Engineering assistance for the completion of the design was provided by Navalprogetti, a ship design company. Design and dimensions of the Castorone PLV Castorone's design was completed by Navalprogetti. The vessel's resistance and propulsion tests were undertaken at Krylov Shipbuilding Research Institute (KSRI) of St. Petersburg, Russia. The length between perpendiculars was elongated from originally decided to be 260m to 266.4m to increase the buoyancy and structural support capacity of the hull at bow. The whole hull was brought together and fitted in the aft part with two structural skegs to support the shaft line. The vessel also has a helicopter deck. It is suitable for the operations of the Sikorsky S-61 N helicopter. With a handling capacity of over 500m/hr, the vessel's pipe deck receivers, handling and storage systems help to minimise the transfer time between the pipe barge and PLV holds. For each pipe hold, the system can handle single or multiple pipe holds and pipe stores. The transit speed of the vessel will be 14kt, while her bollard pull with main propellers will be 180t. Pipe laying capacity is 12m for the triple joint or 18m for double joint, with pipe size up to 48in excluding coating. The overall length of the vessel excluding its ramp is 290m. Moulded breadth is 39m and transit draft is 6.5m, while minimum operational draft is 7m. Displacement of the vessel at maximum operational draft of 10m is 89,000t. Castorone accommodation and other facilities A total of 702 people can be accommodated onboard the vessel. Other facilities will include a mess room, offices, conference rooms, television rooms, crew lifts, and a gymnasium/recreation room. Cargo/tank capacity and deck equipment of Saipem's Castorone The vessel will feature a cargo deck with a clear deck area of 4,300m2. Fuel oil tank capacity will be 6,500m3, fresh water capacity will be 941m3 and ballast water capacity will be 30,000m3. Castorone will be fitted with a knuckle boom crane. Safe working load (SWL) of the crane at a 30m outreach will be 600t, and at 46m will be 350t. There will be two gantry cranes, each of 52t capacity at 35m, and three tensioners of 250t each. The vessel will also be equipped with an abandonment and recovery (A&R) winch. Castorone propulsion and manoeuvring The vessel's power plant will be comprised of eight main generator sets, each capable of generating 8,400kW at 600rpm. There will also be an emergency generator of 1,200kW capacity. Power will be distributed through two separate switchboards of 11kV. Castorone will be fitted with eight side thrusters. These will include two bow thrusters and six azimuth thrusters. For automatic position and heading, the vessel will be provided with a fully redundant Dynamic Positioning (DP) Class-3 control system comprised of two HiPAPs (high precision acoustic positioning) 500 for 3,000m of water depth and two differential global positioning system (DGPS) reference systems.

(see previous video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JhyAQuUtzdg) A PLET can be connected to the pipeline on board of the vessel and then sunk down its final position. (shown at 0m24s) The pipeline can be installed with a "simple" lay barge that is specially designed for the installation of pipe. The pipe is then provided from the large spiral of pipe (shown from 1m50s) feeding the pipeline through the lay barge over the mid stinger in the elastic area of the steel of the pipeline. Pipe is not being deformed like with the reel lay. This method of spiralling a steel pipe for offshore installation is developed by Jan Buijvoets. More info can be found on www.o-lay.net

Russia's Gazprom began construction of the offshore section of the Turkish Stream natural gas pipeline on Sunday, off the coast of Krasnodarskiy Krai. The length of the entire offshore section is over 900 kilometers (559 miles). An Audacia multi-purpose pipe-laying vessel, owned by Allseas, is carrying out the initial construction works, Gazprom CEO Alexei Miller announced on Sunday. The twin-legged pipeline is designed to supply gas to Turkey and Europe separately. The opening of Turkish Stream is planned for year-end 2019, according to Miller.

The Langeled pipeline (originally known as Britpipe) is an underwater pipeline transporting Norwegian natural gas to the United Kingdom. Before the completion of the Nord Stream pipeline, it was the longest subsea pipeline in the world The project was launched under the original name Britpipe. In October 2003, Royal Dutch Shell, ExxonMobil and Statoil signed agreements to supply natural gas through the Britpipe The pipeline's construction began in 2004. The largest part of the pipeline was installed by Acergy Piper, a pipe-laying ship of Acergy. Other pipe-laying ships, which were used, are Solitaire of Allseas, and Saipem 7000 of Saipem. The pipeline was opened in two stages. The southern section (Sleipner Riser platform to Easington) began piping gas on 1 October 2006, the northern section (Nyhamna to Sleipner Riser) opened in October 2007. The official opening of the project was held in London on 16 October 2006 by then-Prime Minister Tony Blair and his Norwegian counterpart, Jens Stoltenberg .

http://www.oceanicmc.com/ Oceanic 5000 is a DP2 Derrick Lay Vessel which can install offshore structures including jackets and topsides weighing up to 4400MT. The state-of-the-art Oceanic 5000 can also lay subsea pipelines utilizing her two double-joint stations resulting in considerable increase in lay rates. This video demonstrates installation of a 2000t jacket by launching method and a 1500t topside (deck) by lifting method. The entire pipe lay assembly process is carried out below the main working deck. This allows maximum pipe storage above deck and more free deck space for structural installation; thereby providing a safer and more productive working condition. The vessel is equipped with a specially-designed “piggy-back” system for the installation of carrier pipes to be simultaneously attached to the main trunk line during the lay operation. The stinger is 74 meters long connected by a hinged A-frame to the stern. The vessel is equipped with three 80T tensioners. The crane is designed to address the majority of lifting requirements including heavy lift installations, near shore lifting, and platform removal. The lift capacities of the main block (4400mt at 37 meters) and the auxiliary block (800mt at 35 meters) enable the vessel to undertake an impressive range of projects. Moreover, the 3000T fully-revolving condition increases efficiency, workability and control of heavy lift operations. Oceanic 5000′s relatively shallow draft provides access to work in shallow waters and fabrication yards. This versatility, combined with the ability to utilize both anchor and DP2 positioning systems, enable OMC the flexibility to perform the entire scope of work irrespective of water depths. The vessel propulsion system, designed to transit at 12 knots, allows her to reach locations in a swift and cost-effective manner.

STATS Group were contracted by COOEC Subsea Technology Co.,Ltd. to provide temporary subsea isolation of the YaCheng pipeline, situated in the South China Sea. The 780km 28” subsea gas export pipeline supplies gas to Hong Kong and had become damaged by an anchor approximately 280km from Hong Kong, at a water depth of 90 meters. The dragged anchor damaged one of two subsea Pipeline End Manifolds (PLEM) and made a severe dent in the pipeline adjacent to the downstream PLEM. When the damage was identified, a temporary repair was implemented by installing a 400m 14” bypass between the PLEMs, which enabled the pipeline to continue operating at its normal operating pressure of 70bar, while the permanent repair was being engineered. As the pipeline is of crucial importance for the supply of gas to Hong Kong, the shut-down period for the repair needed to be kept as short as possible, therefore the repair had to be done without depressurising and flooding the entire pipeline. To enable safe recovery of both ends of the subsea pipeline onto the pipelay vessel, without depressurising the entire pipeline or allowing water ingress into the pipeline, STATS Tecno Plug and BISEP’s were installed into the pipeline to isolate only the sections of pipeline being recovered to the surface. To ensure diver and worksite safety, the Tecno Plug and BISEP had to provide; fully proved, fail-safe, Double Block and Bleed (DBB) isolation barriers from the pressurised pipelines, in compliance with industry guidance on Isolation and Intervention for Diver Access to Subsea Systems.
