DEME Orders New Multi-Purpose Vessel

DEME has ordered another vessel serving the offshore energy market.

Following the recent order for the self-propelled jack-up vessel Apollo, DEME has also signed a contract with the La Naval shipyard in Spain for a multi-purpose vessel to be named Living Stone. Both vessels will be delivered in 2017.

Living Stone will join DEME’s fleet of fall-pipe vessels servicing the offshore energy market, which currently includes the Flintstone, Rollingstone and Seahorse. The vessel will be equipped with a fall-pipe system as well as cable/umbilical loading & installation facilities and will have advanced subsea construction capabilities. It will be able to accommodate 100 persons.

Living Stone has rock installation capabilities and serves transport- and installation projects as well as offshore power cable and umbilical installation for amongst others, interconnectors for the future European supergrid.
