Technip introduces The Deep Orient construction vessel 

PARIS -- Technip officially named its latest new vessel today in Vigo, Spain. The Deep Orient, a newbuild medium construction vessel, will be dedicated to subsea construction and flexible pipelay projects.
During the ceremony held at the Metalships & Docks shipyard in Vigo, the ship was named by the vessel’s godmother, Véronique Delormel, wife of Frédéric Delormel, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Subsea at Technip.

Thanks to a successful cooperation between Technip' s Marine New Builds team in Aberdeen, UK and the MSD team, vessel construction was completed within a tight time frame. The initial contracts were agreed in December 2010 and fabrication, as well as assembly, started in mid-2011. After final outfitting and commissioning, sea trials were successfully completed.

The Deep Orient is equipped with a 250-m tonne main crane, dynamic positioning (DP2) station-keeping capability, two work-class remotely operated vehicles and a large 1,900-sq-m deck area for ample storage of equipment while working on remotely located projects. Moreover, she can accommodate 120 people and complies with the latest marine environmental standards.
The Deep Orient will mobilize at Technip’s facility in Le Trait, France before undertaking her first projects in Norway.
