Basque engineering group Sener, specialising in the energy, shipping and aerospace sectors, is currently involved in developing a subsea support vessel designed to perform subsea remotely operated vehicle (ROV) light construction duties.
The ship will have an overall length of over 112 metres, a length between perpendiculars of over 100 metres and a breadth of 22 metres. The depth to main deck will be 9 metres, while the draft will be more than 7 metres. The vessel will be able to accommodate 110 persons on board.
The vessel will be equipped with a 40-tonne electric deck crane, with the option of fitting a larger one, up to 250 tonnes, and will be able to work at depths of up to 4,000 metres.
It will also have a helicopter deck and the main deck will be reinforced to withstand heavy weights.
This development is taking place in a context in which operators are demanding more efficient ships, with lower fuel consumption, more environmentally friendly and with a higher capacity.
