2 x 550t PLSVs (under construction)

Characterized by their high pipelay tension capacity of 550 tonnes, the twin vessels will be employed principally to install umbilical and flexible flowlines and risers to connect subsea wells to floating production units in waters up to over 2,500 m deep offshore Brazil, including in the pre-salt area.

2 x 300t PLSV and 2 x 650t PLSVs (under construction)

Two of the PLSVs will have a 300-ton laying tension capacity and will be fabricated in Brazil with a high national content. The other two vessels will be designed to achieve a 650-ton laying tension capacity, and will enable the installation of large diameter flexible pipes in ultra-deepwater environments, such as the Brazilian pre-salt.
