www.ship-technology.com Castorone is an ice-class pipe laying vessel (PLV) being built for Saipem, a subsidiary of Italian energy company Eni. In her first job, the new vessel will be used to perform marine activities for the development of the Jack and Saint Malo (JSM) fields in the US Gulf of Mexico. She will be deployed in the first quarter of 2013 to transport and install a crude oil export pipeline. In March 2011, Keppel Shipyard, a subsidiary of Keppel Offshore & Marine, was contracted for the completion of the Castorone. The project is being jointly undertaken by Keppel Shipyard and its sister company Keppel Singmarine. The two companies are responsible for detailed engineering, fabricating marine systems and outfitting, and installation and integration of marine and pipe laying equipment. They are also responsible for commissioning the marine systems and conducting sea trials. The ship arrived at Keppel Shipyard for outfitting after being constructed in China. An official naming ceremony for the new build was held in Singapore in September 2012. The pipe layer is expected to be delivered in January 2013. Navalimpianti Tecnimpianti Group was contracted to design and assemble the vessel's pipe handling and storage system. Engineering assistance for the completion of the design was provided by Navalprogetti, a ship design company. Design and dimensions of the Castorone PLV Castorone's design was completed by Navalprogetti. The vessel's resistance and propulsion tests were undertaken at Krylov Shipbuilding Research Institute (KSRI) of St. Petersburg, Russia. The length between perpendiculars was elongated from originally decided to be 260m to 266.4m to increase the buoyancy and structural support capacity of the hull at bow. The whole hull was brought together and fitted in the aft part with two structural skegs to support the shaft line. The vessel also has a helicopter deck. It is suitable for the operations of the Sikorsky S-61 N helicopter. With a handling capacity of over 500m/hr, the vessel's pipe deck receivers, handling and storage systems help to minimise the transfer time between the pipe barge and PLV holds. For each pipe hold, the system can handle single or multiple pipe holds and pipe stores. The transit speed of the vessel will be 14kt, while her bollard pull with main propellers will be 180t. Pipe laying capacity is 12m for the triple joint or 18m for double joint, with pipe size up to 48in excluding coating. The overall length of the vessel excluding its ramp is 290m. Moulded breadth is 39m and transit draft is 6.5m, while minimum operational draft is 7m. Displacement of the vessel at maximum operational draft of 10m is 89,000t. Castorone accommodation and other facilities A total of 702 people can be accommodated onboard the vessel. Other facilities will include a mess room, offices, conference rooms, television rooms, crew lifts, and a gymnasium/recreation room. Cargo/tank capacity and deck equipment of Saipem's Castorone The vessel will feature a cargo deck with a clear deck area of 4,300m2. Fuel oil tank capacity will be 6,500m3, fresh water capacity will be 941m3 and ballast water capacity will be 30,000m3. Castorone will be fitted with a knuckle boom crane. Safe working load (SWL) of the crane at a 30m outreach will be 600t, and at 46m will be 350t. There will be two gantry cranes, each of 52t capacity at 35m, and three tensioners of 250t each. The vessel will also be equipped with an abandonment and recovery (A&R) winch. Castorone propulsion and manoeuvring The vessel's power plant will be comprised of eight main generator sets, each capable of generating 8,400kW at 600rpm. There will also be an emergency generator of 1,200kW capacity. Power will be distributed through two separate switchboards of 11kV. Castorone will be fitted with eight side thrusters. These will include two bow thrusters and six azimuth thrusters. For automatic position and heading, the vessel will be provided with a fully redundant Dynamic Positioning (DP) Class-3 control system comprised of two HiPAPs (high precision acoustic positioning) 500 for 3,000m of water depth and two differential global positioning system (DGPS) reference systems.

Scroll für Deutsch en Nederlands M.V. Solitaire arrives at the Port of Amsterdam for scheduled maintenance. She is the largest ship calling Amsterdam ever and one of the largest pipelay vessels in the world, Solitaire has set new standards in the pipelay industry. The vessel has been operational since 1998 and has since steadily improved her performance. Based on the same principles as Lorelay her long length and ship-shape ensures excellent workability, and a pipe carrying capacity of 22,000 t makes her less dependent on offshore pipe supply in hostile areas. Precise manoeuvring on full dynamic positioning (10 Azipods) allows the vessel to work safely in congested areas. Solitaire has laid numerous deepwater pipelines. In 2005 her S-lay capacity was increased to a holding force of 1050 t, enabling her to lay the heaviest pipelines. In 2007 she set the world record for ultra-deepwater pipeline installation, laying pipe to a depth of 2775 m (9100 ft). Solitaire’s high cruising speed, high laying speed and substantial carrying capacity make her competitive for pipelay projects anywhere in the world. The maintenance includes upgrading the current 330 metric ton crane, to 800 metric ton, a complicated job which will take a few months. Dutch owner Allseas Group is a global leader in offshore pipeline installation, heavy lift and subsea construction. http://www.heerema.com/content/ http://allseas.com/ De Solitaire heeft als bestemming de USA-terminal van de Ter Haak Groep in de Amsterdamse haven. Het overslagbedrijf is recent een joint venture aangegaan met Zwagerman Offshore Services voor het onderhoud en technische aanpassingen van onder meer werkschepen. Bij de Ter Haak Groep zal onder meer de oude hijskraan (300 ton) op de pijpenlegger worden gedemonteerd en vervangen worden door een 800 ton kraan, de werkzaamheden zullen enkele maanden duren. Eigenaar Allseas is een bedrijf op het gebied van offshore installatie van pijpleidingen voor olie- en gastransport. Het bedrijf heeft ruim 3000 medewerkers en een geschatte omzet van € 1,3 miljard. Het bedrijf is in handen van oprichter en ondernemer Edward Heerema. In 2014 telde de vloot van Allseas drie pijplegschepen (Solitaire, Lorelay en Audacia), een support schip (Calamity Jane) en een ponton (Tog Mor) in beheer. Tog Mor is ook een pijpenlegger maar kan door zijn geringe diepgang in zeer ondiep water actief zijn. http://www.heerema.com/content/ http://allseas.com/ Die Solitaire ist eines der weltweit größten Rohrlegeschiffe. Das Arbeitsschiff befindet sich im Eigentum des holländischer/ schweizerischen Offshore-Dienstleisters Allseas und fährt heute unter der Flagge von Panama. Sie wurde Ende 2014 von dem Neubau Pioneering Spirit als weltweit größter Rohrleger abgelöst. Nach ihrer Fertigstellung hat sie neue Standards in Bezug auf Verlegeleistung und -tiefe für die Pipelinelege-Industrie definiert. Im Gegensatz zu anderen Rohrlegern, die als Halbtaucher oder mit flachen Rümpfen konzipiert sind, besitzt es eine konventionelle Rumpfform. Damit erreicht die Solitaire hohe Transfergeschwindigkeiten, eine sehr gute Seegängigkeit und bietet im Rumpf und auf Deck viel Platz zum Arbeiten. Dies wird auch in der Lagerkapazität von 22.000 t Rohren deutlich, was sie, gerade bei Hochseeeinsätzen, unabhängiger von Versorgungsschiffen macht. Das Schiff bekam mit dem Umbau einen dieselelektrischen Antrieb. Die Basis dafür bilden acht Dieselmotoren des Typs Vasa 6 R 46 B des finnischen Unternehmens Wärtsilä mit einer Leistung von je 5.850 Kilowatt. Deren Leistung wird von acht Generatoren in elektrischen Strom umgewandelt, der wiederum für die Versorgung der Asynchronmotoren der ursprünglich acht Propellergondeln des Typs FS 3500-671 des Herstellers Lips verwendet wird. Im Rahmen der Aufrüstung 2009 wurden zwei weitere Propellergondeln am Heck ergänzt. http://www.heerema.com/content/ http://allseas.com/ Port of Amsterdam: http://www.portofamsterdam.com/ Opening timelapse by Ko van Leeuwen
