ULSTEIN DESIGN HEAVY LIFT VESSEL LAUNCHES AT CHINESE YARD

Wednesday, January 6, 2021 

The Ulstein designed ‘JSD 6000’ pipelay derrick and heavy lifting vessel was recently launched at the ZPMC Qidong shipyard.

After 18 months of work, the vessel construction activities will continue at the ZPMC facility in Changxing base in preparation for sea trials and delivery.

The JSD 6000 features heavy lift, S-Lay, and J-Lay via large, off-centre moonpool capabilities. This will allow the DP vessel to serve deepwater and SURF (Subsea Umbilicals, Risers and Flowlines) projects as well as shallow water EPCI (Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Installation) projects.

The vessel represents the third customised version of the Ulstein SOC 5000 design after the Seven Borealis and Aegir. It is the second version to be classed by Lloyd’s Register.
