Oceaneering International has received the advanced subsea construction support, multi-service vessel Ocean Evolution.

The vessel, which is docked in Port Fourchon, Louisiana, US, has concluded sea trials and received all necessary ABS and US Coast Guard certifications.

It is currently undergoing final outfitting and preparation for project work, which is expected to commence in June.

Ocean Evolution is an ABS class DP-2 subsea vessel and measures 353ft-long, 72ft-wide and weighs 6,900t.

Built in the US as per the Jones Act requirements, the vessel can accommodate a crew of almost 110, while it has a helideck and a working moonpool measuring 23ft x 23ft.

The vessel’s 12,595ft² steel-constructed deck has been designed to carry heavy loads and equipment. Expected to support ten metric tonnes (mt) per square metre, the deck has a total cargo carrying capacity of 1,900mt.

It is equipped with a 250mt active heave compensated (AHC) crane and two work-class remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) with AHC launch, survey and subsea tooling systems.

The vessel is capable of operating in up to 13,000ft water depths.

“The Ocean Evolution is a world-class vessel ready to service the construction and intervention needs of our customers in deepwater.”

Oceaneering International Subsea Projects vice-president Mike Ellis said: “The Ocean Evolution is a world-class vessel ready to service the construction and intervention needs of our customers in deepwater.

“We are excited about the upcoming integrated services that will be provided with this vessel when combined with Oceaneering’s portfolio of subsea products and services.”

Ocean Evolution is also fitted with five low-emission EPA Tier 4 diesel engines with a combined generating capacity of 16MW on a three-bus system.
