She is 180 m long and 32 m wide, carrying a crane of 1.600 ton capacity. “SAMPSON” will be converted into a crane and pipelay vessel, one more conversion on Viktor Lenac’s respectable reference list of complex projects in conversion and offshore among which Helix Producer I, Seminole, Kommandor 3000 and others, establishing its position as one of the few specialized shipyards for ship conversions and gas platform construction in the entire region of the Mediterranean.

Two new thrusters will be installed i.w.o. existing fresh water tanks. HiPAP for dynamic positioning will be relocated in newly built structural trunks. New A&R winch room will be built and outfitted i.w.o. existing hold no.1.

Complete pipe laying equipment (tensioners, track supports, conveyors, pipe loader etc.) will be installed with hydraulic systems on main deck. A new pipe lay tunnel (300 t) and A-frame structure (276 t) will be built and installed. A new stinger structure (390 t) for laying offshore pipelines will be built.

The existing ship systems will be modified to accommodate new equipment, propulsion and power generation.

More than 150 km of cables will be installed in total.

The superstructure will undergo considerable modification including gym, sauna, swimming pool etc.
