KBR Bags Design Contract for Heerema's New Heavy Lift Vessel

KBR has been awarded a contract for the basic design development for Heerema Offshore Services’ large new semi-submersible crane vessel (NSCV) through its subsidiary GVA.

A member of KBR’s Hydrocarbons Business Group, GVA completed seven months of feasibility and conceptual studies on the NSCV in 2013. The basic design phase of the new vessel will cover the major part of 2014.

Expected revenue from the contract will be included in the 2013 fourth quarter backlog of unfilled orders for the Hydrocarbons segment.

Heerema’s selection of GVA as a partner in their development of this new heavy lift vessel demonstrates confidence in GVA’s capability, experience and skills for such a challenging and strategically important project,” said Roy Oelking, KBR Hydrocarbons Group President.We see this as the start of a long-lasting partnership between Heerema and GVA, and are committed to supporting Heerema on future development projects.”

Designed for operations worldwide, the self-propelled vessel will meet Heerema’s priority requirements for maximized transit speed. The vessel will be approximately 200 meters long by 97 meters wide and will have a lifting capacity of 2 x 10,000 metric tons.

Additionally, the NSCV hull configuration will feature a large deckbox on an eight-column structure mounted on two pontoons. The vessel design will meet the highest health and safety standards with minimal environmental impact during fabrication and operation.
