Van Oord’s FFPV ‘Nordnes’ Upgraded

Van Oord’s Flexible Fall Pipe Vessel (FFPV) ‘Nordnes’ has been refitted at Damen Shiprepair Vlissingen under a tight schedule with the Seatools completing upgrades  of the vessel’s Fall Pipe ROV (remotely operated vehicle).

The FPROV is an underwater robot that steers the mouth of the fall pipe, thereby allowing high-precision rock dumping in water depths up to 1200 meters and being crucial to the optimal performance of the vessel.

For highly utilized vessels such as the Nordnes idle time at the shipyard needs to be kept to a minimum, and overhaul schedule therefore had to fit within the time frame for the other activities scheduled during the docking period.

In order to support Van Oord’s schedule, Seatools worked double shifts and weekends to get the work done. After exactly 30 days of intensive labor the FPROV left the workshop on its way back to the vessel.
