Ceona has completed installation of a 570t multiple pipelay vertical lay system (VLS) and twin 400t cranes onto its deepwater field development vessel, the Ceona Amazon.

The company is also installing two 18m-diameter wheels on the top tower and deck aft.

Ceona said it will soon complete the electrical and hydraulic hookup and undertake the commissioning of the system.

The Ceona Amazon vessel operates in several pipelay and operational modes, especially for heavy subsea structure and floater installation services.

"The Ceona Amazon vessel will lay rigid and flexible pipelines and umbilicals, as well as deploy heavy subsea structures or floaters using its subsea cranes."

The vessel is capable of performing complex logistical projects in remote, harsh and deepwater environments, according to Ceona.

Ceona CEO Steve Preston said: "The cranes and multi-lay VLS are a milestone in the installation of pioneering equipment and features that take the vessel into the next era of cost-effective deepwater subsea construction and installation projects.

"We are now looking forward to showcasing the Ceona Amazon and demonstrating its exceptional deepwater subsea tie-back and field development capabilities to our clients, suppliers, partners and other industry representatives end of February in Schiedam.

"The asset is the flagship of our fleet of next generation vessels and is a clear indication of our commitment to bringing new, cost-effective subsea services to the global oil and gas operator market."
