First Steel Cut for SRI ‘Bravenes’

After Van Oord awarded the design and equipment contract for their new subsea rock installation (SRI) vessel ‘Bravenes’ to Ulstein in September 2014, Sinopacific has now begun construction of the vessel with the first steel already cut for this innovative vessel.

The DP-3 vessel is a unique design featuring the distinct X-BOW® hull line and meets the requirements for Clean Design Notation, Green Passport and Ice Class 1A – PC7.

The vessel and its equipment are designed for year-round operability in harsh weather and high-sea states.

Ulstein will also supply the main Fall Pipe Deployment system and the majority of the ancillary systems of the rock installation tower. Ulstein puts a strong focus on simplicity, by mechanizing the systems as much as possible, enabling higher levels of safety and control and as such minimizing human interaction during the deployment and recovery of the fall pipe.

The vessel is set to be delivered by the end of 2016.
