ABB wins $12-million order to power deepwater pipe laying vessel

ZURICH -- ABB recently won a $12-million order to supply electrical power and propulsion systems for a deepwater pipe laying vessel.

The vessel, tentatively named Derrick Lay Vessel 2000 (DLV2000), will be constructed at Keppel Singmarine in Singapore, and delivered in 2015 to Hydro Marine Services, a subsidiary of McDermott International.

Developed by Keppel’s ship design arm, Marine Technology Development (MTD), DLV2000 is equipped to support advanced deepwater pipe laying operations that will allow pipelines to be installed at depths of up to 10,000 ft. It is also capable of achieving efficient pipe lay rates for long trunk lines, operating in severe weather conditions, and providing significant thrust output and power distribution. An economical vessel transit speed is expected to be 12 knots, with a top speed of 14 knots. On completion, the vessel will be able to accommodate up to 400 personnel.

ABB will supply an advanced complete power and diesel electric system package, consisting of medium-voltage switchboards, generators, diesel generator monitoring systems, transformers, frequency converters, motors and remote diagnostic system.
