Subsea 7 HCV
14 June 2013
Maats has been contracted to design and build a 7,000 tonne carousel system and associated loadout equipment by Hyundai Heavy Industries of Korea for a vessel ordered by Subsea 7.
In addition to providing the carousel equipment, Maats is liaising with the vessel designer Wartsila in the critical design of the vessel foundations in the area of the carousel, where the company’s expertise in Finite Element Analysis is proving invaluable. Maats will also take the lead role in designing the deck layout and providing the necessary deck mounted equipment such as chutes and tensioner to deliver product to the under-deck carousel.
Subsea 7 aims to tap expanding demand for larger and more complex construction projects in deep and ultra-deep water and in harsher environments than before with this major new vessel.
