‘Polar Onyx’ Named at Ulstein Verft

On Friday 28 February 2014, the offshore construction vessel ‘Polar Onyx’ was named at Ulstein Verft.

The vessel is built for GC Rieber Shipping, and is chartered by Ceona for five years for deepwater projects offshore Brazil.  The lady sponsor was Ms Natalie Dawn Preston, daughter of Ceona’s CEO, Steve Preston.

‘Polar Onyx’ is delivery number 300 from Ulstein Verft.

The SX121 designed construction vessel will start work for Petrobras in Brazil from May 2014. Ceona and Odebrecht Oil & Gas (OOG) will be operating in partnership to deliver subsea construction services to Petrobras.

The vessel will work as part of the expanding Petrobras fleet of PLSVs in deep and ultra-deep waters offshore Brazil, installing and recovering flexible risers, flowlines and umbilicals in depths of up to 2,200 metres, and the vessel will be in operation with Petrobras for a firm period of 12 months. Under the partnership, OOG will handle the Brazilian Service Contract while Ceona manages the vessel and the delivery of subsea services.

The vessel is equipped with a 250t AHC offshore crane. It has a 275t vertical lay system, situated over the moon pool, and is capable of installing flexible pipes and umbilicals to 3,000m water depth. The vessel is designed to operate in the SURF/Construction/IRM markets, with high capacity for flexible pipe loads.
