DeepOcean Charters New Build Cable Lay Vessel
DeepOcean UK, a subsidiary of DeepOcean Group Holding BV, announces that the company has entered into a 7 year charter agreement with Maersk Supply Services, for a new build next generation cable lay vessel. The vessel is the DOC 8500, a Damen Offshore Carrier which has been designed specifically to suit DeepOcean’s requirements.

The DOC 8500 will extend DeepOcean’s capabilities in the larger cable laying end of the market, representing a new focus on Interconnector projects, in addition to oil & gas sector and renewables work. The specially-equipped vessel will be delivered from the Damen Galati yard in Romania.

Owned and operated by Maersk Supply Service, the vessel will become the latest addition to the 60-plus strong Maersk offshore support vessel fleet.

René Berkvens, Damen Shipyards Group Chief Executive Officer, says: “We are very proud of being contracted by Maersk Supply Service and DeepOcean for this cable layer. We really believe in the new design, a result of our continuous R&D efforts. Because of the flexibility of the concept, the customer can incorporate a large number of purpose-specific demands to suit his specific needs. This particular vessel has been adapted in close cooperation with our clients, drawing on the expertise of all three companies to create a state-of-the-art Offshore Construction Vessel.”

Lasting relationship

Maersk Supply Service Chief Executive Officer Carsten Plougmann Andersen says: “This project builds on our long lasting relationship with DeepOcean, supporting their subsea operations. We look forward to expanding our cooperation with this highly valued customer and entering into a close working relationship with Damen Shipyards Group. We are convinced that the cooperation between all three parties will result in an efficient, reliable and very competitive vessel.”

Tony Inglis, DeepOcean UK Managing Director, says: “This next generation cable lay vessel in combination with our survey and trenching capabilities will enable us to bundle our services for customers in the offshore power cable and umbilical markets. The versatile new vessel will be well suited for installation and burial projects using its 7,000 tonne carousel from land-fall to deepwater and also in remote geographical locations.

“The vessel is designed to meet the high standards demanded by North Sea Oil and Gas customers. We are delighted to be working with Maersk Supply Service and Damen to bring this high capability vessel to the market.”

Flexible platform

Remko Bouma of Damen Shipyards Bergum, who is overseeing vessel construction, describes the DOC 8500 as a “semi-customised, modular” design. For DeepOcean, the ship-to-ship rule compliant vessel has been configured to accommodate 90 personnel, mostly in single occupancy cabins.

“The DOC 8500 has been developed as a flexible platform for both transport and installation work offshore,” says Mr Bouma. “Its bow and slender hull optimise sea keeping in rough seas and suppress slamming. The ship will run on either MGO or HFO and has DP2 capabilities in line with offshore market preferences. Its high on-deck cable carrying capacity makes it particularly competitive as a cable layer, while the vessel has also been optimised for shallow water operations, coming complete with a seven-point mooring system and the ability to take the ground fully loaded.”

The 138m length, 27.5m breadth DOC 8500 features 2,200 m² of unobstructed deck of 20T/m2 load capacity with ro-ro capability. The 9,300dwt vessel will have a top speed of 12 knots.
