Vessels

Technip operates one of the best-in-class fleets of subsea pipelay and subsea construction vessels.

To strengthen the Group's presence on the high-growth subsea market and respond to a demand which is evolving towards developments requiring high technological added-value at increasing water depths, Technip has recently announced major investments in state-of-the-art vessels as part of its fleet development strategy.  

The Technip fleet currently counts 21 vessels with an additional 8 currently under construction (as of end of August 2014).
