SINGAPORE Sembcorp Marine has delivered the semisubmersible well intervention vessel Q7000 to Helix Energy Solutions Group Inc.

Measuring 93.6 m (307 ft) in length and 61.1 m (200 ft) in breadth, the Q7000 was jointly designed by the two companies.

According to Sembcorp, the vessel can perform production enhancement operations as well as field development support, well cleanup and well decommissioning tasks such as tubing removal and sea floor clearance.

Equipped with an IMO-certified Class 3 DP system and the Helix-designed intervention riser system, the Q7000 is able to execute well intervention and decommissioning operations in water depths of up to 3,000 m (9,842 ft).

The Q7000 is expected to start its first project in January 2020, providing subsea services offshore West Africa.

In February 2015, Sembcorp delivered to Helix the Q5000, a vessel similar to the Q7000.
