International businesses and trade media are invited to tour McDermott’s new flagship, the derrick lay vessel DLV 2000, and interview members of the McDermott leadership team in advance of its formal naming ceremony the following day.
McDermott is a leading provider of integrated engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) services for offshore and subsea field developments worldwide, offering financial strength through diversity. We deliver fixed and floating production facilities, pipelines and subsea systems from concept to commissioning to help oil companies safely produce and transport hydrocarbons.
The tour will commence on Wednesday, 13 April 2016 and will last from 10:00 to 14:00. There will be a 90 min. press briefing, followed by vessel walking tour and light refreshments. Advance notification for video/still photography is also required for security review.
In a lower-for-longer world of oil prices and reduced deepwater exploration, McDermott is positioning itself for the global energy recovery with the company’s new flagship, DLV 2000.
The DLV 2000 will add high-end capabilities and versatility to McDermott’s global fleet by utilising a single vessel on projects requiring a combination of pipelay, heavy lift and deck space for structures and offshore workforce accommodation that would normally be executed by multiple vessels. Expectations are high for the DLV 2000 as a key asset for field development in remote locations through its combination of versatile construction capabilities and fast transit speed.
