Helix Energy Solutions, a Houston-based oilfield services provider has taken delivery Q5000 semi-submersible well intervention vessel from Sembcorp Marine’s Jurong Shipyard.

In conjunction with delivery of the vessel, the company used proceeds of the previously announced $250 million Q5000 credit facility to make the final shipyard payment.
