Damen Upgrades Van Oord’s Stornes

Van Oord’s flexible fallpipe vessel Stornes has recently been in Damen Shiprepair & Conversion Rotterdam for a scope of work which allows the vessel to operate at greater water depths in future.

Stornes is a 175m long, 26.24m wide, DP2 vessel, used for subsea rock installation to protect piping.

Since her delivery to Van Oord in 2011, Stornes has mostly been installing rocks to water depths up to 800m.

Damen Shiprepair & Conversion Sales Manager Paul Ippel said that the long-standing relationship between the two companies is based on close cooperation.

A contract awarded to the company in 2013 required the vessel to operate at 1,300m. After some minor modifications in 2014, the first phase of the contract was executed.

Now, the vessel has received an upgrade to her rock-dumping tower, which enables an even better performance at these water depths.
