CSO Deep Blue Launched
CSO Deep Blue, an ultra deepwater pipelay and subsea construction vessel being built in Korea at Hyundai Mipo
Dockyards in Ulsan for Coflexip Stena
Offshore, was launched late this summer and is expected to begin operations in mid-2001.
The vessel's laying system is designed around a powerful tiltable ramp, equipped with two quad trac tensioners capable of sustaining 550 metric tons.
The unique tensioning capacity is rein- forced by its ability to lay rigid (reeled), flexible, rigid (J-Lay) pipes and umbili- cals, offering Coflexip Stena Offshore and its customers a wide range of possi- bilities.
The vessel is part of an overall strate- gic investment by the company to adapt its fleet to the deep and ultra deepwater requirements of its clients in Brazil,
Gulf of Mexico, West Africa and the
CSO Deep Blue is the cornerstone of the investment, showcasing a wide vari- ety of technical capabilities for depths to 8,202 ft. (2,500 m).
