SUBSEA DEPLOYMENT VESSEL INTRODUCTION

One of the key issues on any subsea project is the installation weight of the structures. At present the choice of installation vessel starts to become limited with structures over 100t, and structures over 300t - 400t are likely to require a heavy lift vessel (HLV). These are expensive and of limited availability.

 

The Subsea Deployment System (SDS) is significantly cheaper with regard to CAPEX and OPEX and is capable of installing larger structures in greater water depths and in more hostile environments than is possible with current vessels.
