FLEXPACK 1000® onboard the vessel "AMAZON", which will be converted by ROYAL IHC for McDERMOTT

Teufelberger-Redaelli has been awarded by ROYAL IHC to supply # two impressive FLEXPACK1000® rotation resistant nominal Ø154mm x 3950m each, MBL +2000mT, for two dual A/R winches for an innovative patented and complete J-Lay system with 1,500 metric tons, and fitted aboard the McDermottInternational Inc.’s pipelay and construction vessel AMAZON.

The vessel AMAZON will be converted by Royal IHC for McDermott in terms of modifications to the ship’s structures, and the removal and replacement of the equipment and commissioning. The J-lay system will be able to handle every variety of pipe including normal flowlines, export lines, and various pipe-in-pipe configurations, ranging in size from 4.5 to 24 inches with wall thicknesses approaching 2 inches. We believe it will definitely be a game-changer in the market.
