SINGAPORE – EMAS AMC, the subsea division of EMAS, has christened and named the Lewek Constellation prior to its departure to the Gulf of Mexico to commence work for Noble Energy. The Lewek Constellation, an ice-classed, multi-lay offshore construction vessel with ultra-deepwater pipelay and heavy-lift capabilities, is the company’s flagship project-enabling asset.
The Lewek Constellation was initially conceptualized in 2009 and its hull was successfully launched in 2012. It measures 178 m (584 ft) by 46 m (150 ft), and is designed to deliver complex projects in a safe, efficient and reliable manner in water depths of more than 3,000 m (9,842 ft).
Additionally, EMAS says that the Lewek Constellation is only one of two vessels in the world in its class to achieve the highest environmental and comfort notations, with an ice-classed hull capable of transiting through 0.8 m (2 ft) of ice and a DP-3 system. It also comes equipped with an 800-metric ton (881-ton) Huisman multi-lay system that is able to support both rigid and non-rigid pipelines, a 3,000-metric ton (3,306-ton) Huisman offshore heavy-lift crane, two Schilling workclass ROVs, and a portable reel system.
