Lloyd Werft Bremerhaven will build a 7,000dwt cable-laying vessel for Beluga Offshore Cable at a cost of €50m ($67.5m).

Beluga Connection, which will be 110m long, 28m wide and have a draught of 4.5m, is expected to be completed by May 2012.

The propulsion system will consist of four 1,000kW azimuth thrusters, two of which are retractable, and a 450kW bow thruster.

The ship’s maximum transfer speed will be 12kts and it will be equipped with three onboard cranes to lift rolls of cable and a sea swell compensator for cable laying at a depth of 50m.

Beluga Connection will also have a four-point mooring system, a 4m x 7m moon pool and a diving system with a decompression chamber, according to motorship.com.
