Saipem takes delivery of Normand Maximus

November 1, 2016

Solstad Offshore has taken delivery of the Normand Maximus and started it on its eight-year charter contract with Italy's Saipem.  

The Normand Maximus was developed in close collaboration between Solstad, Saipem and shipbuilder Vard. The vessel is equipped with a 900-ton active heave compensated offshore crane and a 550-ton top tension vertical lay-system, enabling the installation of large diameter flexible pipes in ultra deepwater environments. 

The vessel was built by Vard in Romania and Norway.

The long term financing of "Normand Maximus" is arranged by DNB, NIBC, Swedbank, GIEK and Eksportkreditt.
