Ultra Deep Solutions makes pipelay vessel play

Singapore’s Ultra Deep Solutions says it is currently exploring the cost to build a 5000 ton lift deepwater flexible pipelay vessel. 
The vessel, which will be S-lay and J-lay capable, will be built for an end user client who is also looking at the hybrid market. 
Shel Hutton, CEO of Ultra Deep Solutions, commented: “For UDS this is an interesting project to get involved in. We are constantly looking at new ways of technology to advance ship building forward. Technology will be now our focus as we go into a new segment. We are honoured to work closely with our partners to move this project forward.”
Ultra Deep Solutions was founded in August 2014 and had embarked on a rapid newbuild programme, initially focused on dive support construction vessels. Last month, the company entered a new segment when it put pen to paper on the first of five well intervention vessels at China Merchants Heavy Industry.
