Gallery: Pipe layer Seven Rio on sea trials


Royal IHC has informed that the pipelaying vessel Seven Rio has started its sea trials following the installation of a 550mt pipelay tower.

The vessel was built by Royal IHC for Subsea 7, a subsea engineering, construction and services company serving the offshore energy industry.

It was launched in late November 2014 at Royal IHC’s shipyard in The Netherlands and named by Anelise Lara, Petrobras Executive Manager for the giant Libra project.

The Seven Rio has an overall length of 146 metres, a beam of 30 metres and a Class-2 dynamic positioning system. The vessel is equipped with a vertical (tiltable) lay system – with a 550t top tension capacity – and twin ROVs. It is fitted with two under-deck storage carousels, with a capacity for 2,500t and 1,500t of product respectively.

The Seven Rio will support Petrobras’ offshore operations in Brazil as it is the second of four vessels ordered specifically for operations in Brazilian waters.
