Subsea 7 has announced the acquisition of Toisa Pegasus, a multi-purpose offshore construction and dive support vessel. The 2009-built vessel is to be renamed Seven Pegasus and will primarily support Subsea 7’s operations in the North Sea and Asia Pacific.
John Evans, chief operating officer, said: “This acquisition reinforces our leading diving capabilities and reflects our strategy to actively manage our fleet composition to meet our client’s requirements and market conditions.”
The versatile vessel can perform both heavy and light construction work scopes.
Designed and built by IHC, the Netherlands, the DP3 vessel features a twin-bell 18-person saturation diving system. The system includes two six-person twin-lock saturation and two three-person saturation chambers.
Toisa Pegasus is also equipped with two 18-person hyperbaric lifeboats, one port-mounted and one starboard-mounted, and a dedicated 750kW dive emergency generator.
The vessel carries one work-class ROV and has capacity to carry a second work-class ROV, with a dedicated survey suite.
A 400-tonne crane enables it to support a range of construction projects.
The vessel will undergo a docking and crew familiarisation programme before beginning operations in quarter two 2019.
