With a flexible pipelay tension capacity of 650t the two vessels enable installation of large diameter flexible pipes in the ultra-deepwater pre-salt area in Brazil.

TechnipFMC Subsea Projects president Hallvard Hasselknippe said: “We are confident that these new state-of-the-art PLSVs, together with the expertise of our people, will be key for Petrobras to successfully achieve its projects offshore Brazil.”
