ADELAIDE, Australia -- Acergy SA plans to modify the Toisa Proteus vessel to install moorings and a buoy system for an FPSO as well as two manifold structures for the Vincent field, offshore Australia.

Harry Johnson, project technical manager at Acergy, told attendees at the Australian Petroleum Production & Exploration Association 2007 conference that chain lockers and flexible lay systems also are planned for the vessel's deck.

The Toisa Proteus will undergo a one-month modification in May/June this year, prior to deployment to the field in August, Johnson said.

The boat's next contract will be installation at New Zealand's Maari field, Johnson said, adding that Acergy is negotiating more contacts for the boat, which has been taken on a three-year charter for the offshore construction and diving services in the Asia Pacific region.

The Toisa Proteus, built in 2002 at the Van Der Geissen yard in Holland, is a heavy construction and diving support ship. It is 132 m (433 ft) long and has a 22-m (72-ft) beam. The vessel has Class 3 dynamic positioning, a heave compensated crane with 400-metric-ton (441-ton) lift capability, and a saturation diving system for 14 divers.
